Following many months of committed effort, there is now a proposed settlement with Canada to compensate Day Scholar Survivors and their Descendants. We encourage all Day Scholars and their Descendants to read the Notice Forms that explain the settlement carefully. The next step will be the settlement approval hearing starting on September 7, 2021. Day Scholars and Descendants can tell the Court what they think about the settlement before or during the hearing.
