Pope Francis landed in Canada on July 24 as part of a week-long trip to advance reconciliation and healing between the Roman Catholic Church and the Indigenous communities who suffered from years of abuse in the residential and day school systems.

CBC News has extensive coverage of the events in Alberta, Quebec and Iqaluit, which make up what the Pope has said will be a "pilgrimage of penance" that he hopes can help heal the wrongs done to Indigenous people by Roman Catholic priests and nuns.

In addition, a number of live stream interpretation feeds, including in 12 Indigenous languages and ASL, will be available on the official website of the Pope's visit.

Here's how to watch and listen to the coverage on CBC Television, CBC Radio One, CBC News Network and CBC Gem. You can also find coverage on, on the CBC News app, the CBC Listen app and on YouTube.
