Project of Heart – Commemorating the Children for Future Generations was selected as a National Commemoration Project by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada in 2012-13. During this period of time over 600 schools, along with numerous church groups, community organizations, corrections agencies and government departments participated in the POH, contributing tiles for inclusion in the regional commemoration exhibits.  This process resulted in over 3800 teachers, 55,000 students and an estimated 185,000 Canadian learners participating in POH and the National Commemoration Project.  The tiles from each of these groups were collected and curated in to memorial and commemoration exhibits honoring former students of Indian Residential Schools in every province and territory in Canada. Read More about the exhibits and take the virtual tour.
