CWN Editor's Note: In September 2021, the Canadian bishops announced a $30 million ($23.2M US dollars) national financial pledge to support healing and reconciliation initiatives, following reports that Canadian Catholic institutions had raised less than $4 million toward a similar $25 million pledge made in 2006.

On July 18, the bishops’ conference announced that dioceses, over the past nine months, have contributed $4.6 million ($3.55M US dollars) toward the $30 million pledge.
