Indian Residential School Claims
Attending Indian Residential Schools was mandatory for many Aboriginals and over 150,000 Aboriginal children were separated from their families and communities because of Canada’s policies. Canada and various churches operated Residential Schools across the country for over a century. Approximately 80,000 former students survive today.
If you are a survivor you may be entitled to compensation.
