Indian Residential School Records

About This Website

Welcome to the Indian Residential School Records Website!

Have you ever wondered why the story of residential schools has been told only by those who attended during the system’s final years? Do no documents survive from the more than a century of the residential school system’s existence to add to that limited perspective?

Yes, thousands of documents do survive. They tell a fascinating story.

Browse the records at the links in the menu bar above. All the document files can be downloaded for research purposes.
