What can settlers do to take action towards policy and change?
The first thing to do is to read the 94 Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s report, particularly 71 to 76 of the that deal with Missing Children and Burial Information. It’s time to be firm with all of our governments and our churches that they need to act.

After reading, contact your local MP and tell them to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions 94 Calls to Action. (Find your local MP here:

Dear [recipient name will go here], 

It has been more than six years since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission tabled a comprehensive report and a road map for action.  

The 94 calls to action issued by the TRC are absolutely critical to Canada’s path to reconciliation, and there is no excuse for failing to act when the objectives are so clear.

The announced discovery of the remains of missing Indigenous children in Kamloops, B.C.; Brandon, Manitoba; Lestock, Saskatchewan; and Regina, Saskatchewan has re-ignited the national outrage about Canada’s colonial violence. The failure to implement the 94 calls to action are a failure to honour the victims and survivors of the Residential School system.

As my Member of Parliament, I urge you in the strongest possible terms to champion reconciliation and specifically implementation of the TRC recommendations.
