Canada’s Indian Residential Schools under the original IRSSA

By our reckoning, the original Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA) identified 131 Indian Residential Schools:

  • Schedule E (Residential Schools) identified 107 Indian Residential Schools
  • Schedule F (Additional Residential Schools) identified 24 Indian Residential Schools.

We are publishing these 131 institutions, as they appeared in the original IRSSA, as a machine-readable, Tab-Separated-Value file, with these data fields:
