Organized by The Legacy of Hope Foundation

Where are the Children? examines and acknowledges the experiences, consequences and impact of Canada’s Residential School System on Aboriginal peoples.

The exhibition consists of 118 framed archival photographs, text panels, maps, original classroom textbooks and historical government papers selected from nine public and church archives. Where are the Children? does not attempt to tell the whole story about residential schools; rather, it introduces people to a part of Canadian history that spans over 130 years from the 1880s to present day.

Through documentation, acknowledgment and education, the exhibition aims to promote understanding and reconciliation in Canada about residential schools and the continued effect they have on people’s lives today.
