Mourning the loss of 215 children

We are deeply grieved by the news of the 215 children who were found buried in a mass grave at a former residential school in Kamloops, B.C. As an organization that advocates for the rights and well-being of every child in Canada, we mourn the loss of these 215 Indigenous children and the many more yet uncounted, and we honour the survivors and their families.
