Launch of photo set of Alberta Residential Schools

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is launching a single portal to provide access to photos related to Residential Schools, taken between 1885 and 1996. Some 150,000 Aboriginal children attended over 130 residential schools located across the country.

The first set of published photos comprises about 65 images associated with the Residential Schools of Alberta. LAC will add photos for the other provinces and territories as they become available. The Residential Schools Photos page will make it easy to select the province or territory of your choice, and save or print the images you wish to view.
