The NCTR, in collaboration with the University of Manitoba’s Access and Privacy Office, strives to make new records available to Survivors, their families and communities, and the public via the proactive disclosure of records process. Click here to view the new records released to the public.
The proactive disclosure of records means that records from the NCTR Archives are being authorized for release by the NCTR’s Executive Director and the University of Manitoba Access and Privacy Officer in accordance with Section 7 of The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation Act. Records are released for informational and educational purposes and are made accessible via the public database.
The NCTR receives two types of proactive disclosure requests; external request for the release of records from a Survivor, researcher, media outlet, or a member of the public looking to access records not previously released by the NCTR; and internal NCTR requests to release new content to the public via social media or the public database for the purposes of education and advancing Reconciliation.
We will be updating the new batches released on the website here. We will also post on the NCTR social media accounts to keep you updated on the new records released for increased access to the newly available content.
We are inviting the public to participate in the proactive disclosure process. Please let us know your opinion regarding which records you wish to see released. In doing so, it will enable us to better understand the needs of communities, Nations, educators, and researchers and to create a space where Survivors, their families, and the public can voice comments and concerns. Please forward all comments or feedback regarding this process to NCTRrecords@umanitoba.ca, or call the NCTR at 204-474-6069.
NCTR’s spirit name – bezhig miigwan, meaning “one feather”.
Bezhig miigwan calls upon us to see each Survivor coming to the NCTR as a single eagle feather and to show those Survivors the same respect and attention an eagle feather deserves. It also teaches we are all in this together — we are all one, connected, and it is vital to work together to achieve reconciliation.
