This site is crucial to understanding the history of residential schools and reconciliation in Canada. The Shingwauk Residential School, which operated from 1874-1970, is now home to Algoma University, which offers cross-cultural education, healing and learning. Visitors can also explore the award-winning Reclaiming Shingwauk Hall exhibition that tells the site’s history within the larger history of colonialism and reconciliation.
