Where to Get the TRC Report
The Main Text Plus a Few Options
ONLINE TEXT VERSION:Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future: Summary of the Final Report PDF
What We Have Learned: Principles of Truth and Reconciliation Audio Files
This audio version, comprised of a series of MP3 files, can be downloaded and listened on your smartphone during your commute to work. The document read is 126 pages long (6.5 hours) and is essentially the History section found in the Summary. It is not the full Summary (note that on the TRC website, these audio files are mislabelled as being the Summary).
This is a fantastic video project started by Erica Violet Lee, a Nēhiyaw woman in Saskatoon, Zoe Todd, a Métis writer in Edmonton, and Joseph Paul Murdoch-Flowers, an Inuk man in Iqaluit. You can watch others read sections of the Summary.
**As an extension of the Youtube Videos online, Daniel Nikpayuk has formatted and standardized them to be a normal file size, primarily for “accessibility” reasons as not all Canadians have quality internet access, nor should we assume everyone can access the same report in the same way. Auxiliary project is located here.
HARD COPIES: There are hard copies available for purchase through Lorimer Publishers, for example. You could also order it through your local independent bookstore. Many local libraries also carry a copy if you prefer to not read online.
