Welcome to the official website for the 60s Scoop Settlement claims process. This site is regularly updated, so please check back often for updates on the claims process, claims statistics, and additional resources.
Claims received by the late claim application deadline Dec 2019
Claims deemed eligible based on the criteria outlined in the Settlement Agreement.
The Administrator has reviewed these claims and determined that additional information is needed, or, the information provided does not meet the Settlement criteria. Applicants in this category will have received either a Notice of Intent to Reject, a Reminder Letter, or a Request for Additional Information (Supplementary Claim Form). Without additional information that meets the Settlement criteria, the Administrator cannot find these claims eligible. Individuals have been notified of this requirement. Individuals have a time-limit of 30 days to respond to their Reminder Letters or 45 days to respond to their Notice of Intent to Reject or Request for Additional Information letters (Supplementary Claim Form).
These claims are currently being assessed for eligibility. Note that this includes claims that are being reviewed by the Administrator, the appropriate Provincial, Territorial, or Federal agency, or by one of the four Land Claims Organizations. This category also includes claims that have been reviewed previously and are now being re-assessed either by the Reconsideration Officer or by the Administrator, based on new information applicants have provided.
These numbers are subject to change and are for informational purposes only. The number of claims being actively assessed, and the number of claims determined as requiring additional information, may go up and down as supporting documentation is received and reviewed.
