Canada's residential schools: the legacy describes what Canada must do to overcome the schools' tragic legacy and move towards reconciliation with the country's first peoples. For over 125 years Aboriginal children suffered abuse and neglect in residential schools run by the Canadian government and by churches. Although Canada has formally apologized for the residential school system and has compensated its survivors, the damaging legacy of the schools continues to this day. This volume examines the long shadow that the residential schools have cast over the lives of Aboriginal Canadians who are more likely to live in poverty, more likely to be in ill health and die sooner, more likely to have their children taken from them, and more likely to be imprisoned than other Canadians.Contents:
