Description
The Regina Industrial School was opened in 1890, in what is now the province of Saskatchewan. Indian Affairs put pressure on band chiefs to send their children to the school. A 1904 study showed that on a per person basis, twice as much was being spent on food for teachers as for students, and that, at a time when the school had a deficit, the principal was supplying himself with luxury foods. The poor conditions at the school led to a continued low enrollment. The school was closed in 1910. (National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation)
