The Commission uses Foundational Documents to share key facts and events leading up to and during the April 2020 mass casualty in Nova Scotia.

To date, the Commission has gathered and analyzed close to 40,000 pages of evidence and 230 video and audio files, in addition to information collected through the Commission’s own investigations, witness interviews and site visits. The below list of the Commission's Foundational Documents is not exhaustive and there will be additional Foundational Documents developed during Phase 2 of the Commission’s work exploring the issues in our mandate.

We are now sharing with the Participants what we are learning (i.e. our Foundational Documents) and asking if they have further questions or if there are areas they feel need further investigation. Following this consultation process, the Foundational Documents will be shared with the public through hearings and online. This may prompt further questions and bring forward additional evidence. Foundational Documents and the sources referenced will be available on our website.

The Commission will welcome feedback on Foundational Documents even after they have been entered into evidence, and will be making updates to the documents as new information is received.

This factual record will form the basis for our work on understanding how and why the mass casualty happened, and to develop findings and recommendations to help protect Canadians in the future.
