Reminder of Admission requirements for Estate Claims

September 6, 2018

Based on two re-review decisions issued by the Chief Adjudicator earlier this year, claims that are signed by estate reps versus the residential school survivor himself or herself, are not eligible for admission to the IAP: K-12989 (March 27, 2018) and W-10443 (April 10, 2018).

Counsel are reminded that all estate claims are subject to the Sept 30, 2018 EPHT deadline noted here.

IAP Counsel who wish to review either of the two re-review decisions can access them on the IAP Decisions Database. IAP counsel who wish to obtain access to the database should send a new account request with their name, email address, and phone number by email to:
