Teleconference


This session considers the relevance of the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the context of public service lawyers acting for the Crown and introduces, or revisits, consideration of a rights-based framework for reconciliation.

Moderator
Nicole (Niki) Bresser, Legal Counsel, Indigenous Legal Relations Group, BC Ministry of Attorney General, Legal Services Branch

Speaker
Ry Moran, Director, National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation

As the first Director of the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, Ry Moran's job is to guide the creation of an enduring national treasure — a dynamic Indigenous archive built on integrity, trust and dignity. Ry came to the centre from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC). On the TRC's behalf, he facilitated the gathering of nearly 7,000 video-/audio-recorded statements of former residential school students and others affected by the residential school system. Ry was also responsible for gathering the documentary history of the residential school system from more than 20 government departments and nearly 100 church archives — representing millions of records.
