History Biographical: 

The Shingwauk Project began producing Residential School Photo Albums in 2005 as part of the "Remember the Children Project". The Remember the Children project focused on the Spanish Residential Schools. This project aimed to increase the accessibility of photographs to residential school survivors and their families. The Remember the Children initiative allowed for the identification of individuals in photographs. Since 2005, The Shingwauk Project has created Residential School Photo Albums for all of the residential schools which existed in Ontario. These photo albums are constantly being updated as more individuals are identified in the photographs.

Scope Content: 

Series comprises photo albums of the residential schools which operated in Ontario. The albums include background historical information and photographs of former students and staff of the residential schools.
