Class Action claim filed in Federal Court on August 15, 2012. The lawsuit aims to close a gap in which thousands of daytime students at residential schools were denied monetary compensation in the government’s 2006 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA) in the same manner as students residing in the schools. While the so-called “day scholars” could apply for individual assessment for abuses experienced in school, they were excluded from “common experience” compensation for having attended.
