Special thanks to all Survivors who traveled from near and far to share their truth and to everyone who has come to witness this important occasion.

On behalf of the Survivors and the TRC, we would like to thank those who helped bring more Survivors to Halifax by providing travel, accommodations, meals and services to support the Atlantic National Event.
