Council of Parties Report – Winter 2017

This report issued by the Restorative Inquiry Council of Parties is one of many public reporting opportunities that will be part of the work of the Restorative Inquiry.

A restorative inquiry into the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children will bring government and community together to examine the effects of systemic and institutional abuse and racism, and to work together to build better relationships.


Premier Stephen McNeil offered a formal apology on October 10, 2014 on behalf of the province to those who suffered abuse and neglect at the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children.
