March 27, 2015, We aren’t sure if National Research Center On Indian Residential Schools (see link) will contain the victim statements collected by TRC-Canada from Canada Scoops victims not placed in residential schools but instead placed in foster and adoption system, the latter group of Canada Scoops Victims were placed in adoption and foster care in Canada and, of course, in USA and west Europe. We have asked TRC-Canada to clarify for us if the statements of USA Placed Victims – Survivors of Canada Scoops and those placed in west Europe will be included in this research centre, and we will update this post with their answer when we receive it.
While we don’t know much about the victim statements of Canada Scoops Victims who were kept within Canada and not placed in the residential schools but instead placed in Canada foster care and adoption services, the victim statements of USA Placed Victims-Survivors of Canadian Scoops along with the statements of Canada Scoops Victims who were placed in west Europe have since been kept within National Archives of Canada. If the victim signed release, the statements are then accessible to the media and general public, can be re-published etc.
