2 former AFN chiefs call on Ottawa to settle residential schools day scholars class action Social Sharing

Two former Assembly of First Nations national chiefs are calling on Ottawa to settle a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of residential school survivors known as day scholars — one of the last groups from the era that has yet to receive compensation. 

Days scholars are students who attended residential school in the day but returned home in the evening. They were excluded from the 2006 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement and thus not eligible for the settlement's common experience payments — $10,000 for the first year of living at a residential school and $3,000 for every year after.

However, day scholars could file claims for compensation for abuse under the Independent Assessment Process  created by the settlement agreement.

Day scholars are seeking the same common experience payment provided to other residential school survivors.
