Project Management

The Brechin Group Inc. has provided digital conversion project management leadership on several well-known international projects.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada hired Brechin to digitize all of the residential school film, documents, audio, video, maps and architectural drawings in storage.

This three-year project involved digitizing content located at four different Libraries and Archives Canada sites and five church archives across the country. Brechin wrote the digital imaging specifications, designed and implemented the digitization process. The Brechin team consisted of over 50 people involved in the capture and post processing of this content. Great care was taken to ensure that all relevant material of residential schools from these archives were treated with great respect. The resulting data is housed at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation office at the University of Manitoba.
