NCTR seeks members for Survivors Circle


The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR) at the University of Manitoba officially opened the call for nominations and applications for positions on the Survivors Circle. This call invites First Nations, Inuit and Métis Survivors, organizations, groups, communities and individuals across Canada to apply, or nominate, Residential School Survivors for consideration.

Survivors are the foundation of Truth and Reconciliation work in this country and are an essential part of the NCTR. The Survivors Circle ensures that Residential School Survivors’ voices remain central to all of the NCTR’s projects and policies. They provide advice to the NCTR, Governing Circle, the University of Manitoba, and partners on the NCTR mandate, as well as important matters to the broader Survivor community.

The Governing Circle of the NCTR will select members of the Survivors Circle based on geographical regions and a balance of strengths and experiences. The Survivors Circle members serve a two year term.

Deadline: March 14, 2019
