Save the Evidence
Save the Evidence is a campaign to raise awareness and support for the restoration of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School (Brampton ON) , and to develop the building into an Interpreted Historic Site and Educational Resource. As a site of conscience, the final goal is to create a fully-realized Interpretive Centre that will be the definitive destination for information about the history of Residential Schools in Canada, the experiences of Survivors of the schools, and the impact that the Residential School system has had on our communities.
The total budget for the restoration of the Mohawk Institute Residential School Building is $23.5 Million. With your assistance and support we will be able to build upon the success we have achieved in fundraising $12 Million with renovations of Phase One and Two complete. We are currently awaiting response to funding for $11 Million. If this funding is successful, we will need to raise the remaining $500,000.00 to complete the final phase of Save the Evidence.
The community overwhelmingly wanted to repair the building – to Save the Evidence of what happened there during this dark chapter in Canadian history and to ensure this history is never forgotten. Every donation helps us to realize this nationally important project.WW
