Description
The Holy Angels school was founded 1874 at Fort Chipewyan, in what is now Alberta. The school moved to a new school building in 1881, which was enlarged in 1898, 1904, and 1907. A new school opened in 1944 and in the 1950s a day school operated out of the residential school. Many of the students at the school were Métis or non-Aboriginal. From the 1950s onward Holy Angels increasingly became a child welfare institution. The school closed 1974. (National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation)
