Victims of Kamloops Residential school

May 31, 2021

Dear members of the McGill community:              

In light of the remains of 215 Indigenous children that were recently found at a former residential school in Kamloops, British Columbia, the McGill flag (on the McCall MacBain Arts Building) will be lowered today in memory of the victims. The flag will remained lowered until June 8. McGill offers its sincere condolences to the Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation and all survivors of residential schools and their families. The University is in discussion with local Indigenous communities to determine how we can all heal together.         

Any member of the McGill community in need of support should reach out to the resources below.
