The Descendant Class are children of Day Scholars. Within the settlement, the Descendant Class is able to apply to access the funding within the $50 million Day Scholars Revitalization Fund. The funds will be used to support healing, wellness, education, language, culture, heritage, and commemoration, and will be managed by a not-for-profit society that is independent of Canada and Class Counsel. Canada or Class Counsel will not make decisions on who receives funding through the Day Scholars Revitalization Fund.
The Day Scholars Revitalization Society which will administer the Fund is currently being established. Information regarding when the Society will start receiving applications for funding will be posted on this website when available.
Conversely, an Estate Claim is made on behalf of a deceased Day Scholar for the $10,000 Day Scholars Compensation. These claims can only be submitted for Day Scholars who passed away on or after May 30, 2005. Estate Claim may be submitted by the deceased Day Scholar’s estate administrator, executor, trustee, liquidator, or if none is appointed, their highest priority heir.
