An exhibit on Canada’s residential school system will be held at the University of Manitoba today.
“100 Years of Loss — The Residential School System in Canada” is designed to raise awareness about the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada. 100 Years of Loss strives to sensitize and educate Canadians, while challenging stereotypes and fostering a dialogue between people.
Author and residential school survivor Ted Fontaine will share his perspective and experiences of residential schools. He’ll then share in an open discussion with those in attendance.
The exhibit is a project of the Legacy of Hope Foundation, and will open in the William Norrie Centre, 485 Selkirk Avenue beginning at 11 a.m. The public can view it from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until November 9.
