Uniquely located on the site of the former Shingwauk Residential School, the Shingwauk Residential Schools Centre (SRSC) at Algoma University is a grassroots community heritage organization. They are dedicated to making the story of Indian Residential Schools, broadly, and the story of the Shingwauk and Wawanosh Schools and its Survivors specifically, more accessible.
The SRSC provides educational programming in the form of guided tours, talks, and exhibitions to
over 20,000 visitors a year. This outreach programming is a direct manifestation of the desire to share Residential School history from the survivor perspective, helping both Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences learn about the history of residential schools, and an effort to create opportunities for all visitors to engage in healing.
