Residential School History and Dialogue Centre

Museums and Art Galleries

The exterior of the Indian Residential School History and Dialogue Centre at UBC Vancouver.


Between the late 1800s and 1996, approximately 150,000 Indigenous children were forced to attend residential schools run by the Government of Canada in collaboration with church organizations. These children were taken from their families, removing them from their languages, lands and cultures. UBC’s Residential School History and Dialogue Centre is a space for people to gather, listen, learn and witness this history, informed by residential school Survivors and their communities. Visitors are welcome to browse the exhibit and use the interactive display to learn more about the legacy of residential schools in Canada.
