Wednesday June 11, 2008 Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper delivered a historic apology for the treatment of aboriginal children at residential schools.

The Canadian government formed the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as part of the court-approved Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement that was negotiated between legal counsel for former students, legal counsel for the churches, the government of Canada, the Assembly of First Nations and other aboriginal organizations.

The TRC has a budget of $60 million. It was formally established on June 1, 2008, and will complete its work within five years.
