Indigenous Resource Overview Timeline

In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its final report documenting the atrocities of the residential school system. The report also contains recommendations to help restore the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. Education plays a key role in this. Pearson is committed to doing our part. We embrace our responsibility to represent the stories of all peoples of Canada in the content and services we provide. As a trusted partner in Indigenous education, Pearson will continue to look for ways to move forward in our road to reconciliation.
