In response to the discovery of children’s remains on the grounds of former Kamloops Residential School, the provincial government in Alberta announced it will be funding research with the intention of locating unmarked burial sites at former residential schools within its own province.

“Finding their graves is a matter of reconciliation and another step toward closure for families,” said Rick Wilson, Minister of Indigenous Relations in a statement.
