RCY Stands in Support of All Who Have Been Impacted By Residential Schools

The heartbreaking recoveries by First Nations communities have left us all with heavy hearts. The Representative and her staff acknowledge and grieve for the ongoing and persistent harm and trauma caused by residential schools across B.C. and Canada.

RCYBC pledges to walk alongside First Nations, M├ętis, Inuit and Urban Indigenous communities as strong allies and to continue our work to improve the child- and youth-serving systems and support B.C. families.

You are not alone. If you need emotional support, the National Indian Residential School Crisis Hotline can be reached at 
1-800-721-0066.
