WINNIPEG — The University of Manitoba has received a $1 million gift from TD Bank Group to support equipment and training for up to 76 student interns over the next 10 years.
The interns will work on preparing, reviewing and readying materials collected by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
Wednesday’s announcement was made during a special ceremony at the U of M, which is the official repository of records for the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR).
“The University of Manitoba is honoured to help maintain these sacred records, and is committed to ensuring the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation is accessed by as many people as possible,” said David Barnard, U of M’s president and vice-chancellor.
