Over about 140 years of operation at over 150 Indian Residential School locations, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) research indicates that at least 3,213 children are reported to have died. This is a conservative estimate in light of the sporadic record keeping and poor document survival, and the early state of research into a vast (and still growing) archive. Most of these children died far from home, and often without their families being adequately informed of the circumstances of death or the place of burial. For the most part, the surviving records do not provide this information, and the report below marks an early effort at searching for these resting places.
