About the Reconciliation Framework:
In 2022, the Steering Committee on Canada’s Archives released the Reconciliation Framework: The Response to the Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Taskforce. Created in response to Call to Action 70 issued by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the Reconciliation Framework is the result of an extensive study of archival policies and practices, the role of archives in colonization, and steps for building respectful relationships with Indigenous communities. The Reconciliation Framework outlines recommendations for action and is essential reading for all people working in archives today.
