Residential schools were government sponsored Religious schools for the Aboriginal community. Assimilation is the process by which a person or a group's language and/or culture come to resemble those of another group. The residential schools were made to assimilate the Natives to live within Canada in peace with society. The residential Schools were closed in 1996 with the last school in Saskatchewan. This was due because the schools were close due to expense and teachers preferred working at public schools. The Aboriginals today show us that Residential Schools were ineffective. This can be shown by examining the components of Harper's Apology, Maclean Magazine Issues and the FN Test Show far below average.
