Sixties Scoop Proposed Settlement Hearings Update – May 7, 2018
Who Can Object at the Toronto Hearings on May 29th and How?
The only people entitled to object at the May 29th, 2018 Settlement hearing in Toronto are class members in the Brown v Canada action who filed a written objection with Collectiva before April 30, 2018.
A class member is defined as:
Indian children who were taken from their homes on reserves in Ontario between December 1, 1965 and December 31, 1984 and were placed in the care of non-aboriginal foster or adoptive parents who did not raise the children in accordance with the aboriginal person’s customs, traditions, and practices.
How can I object if I am not an Ontario Class Member?
If you are not a class member of the Brown v Canada Ontario class action, and you wish to object, you must do so on May 10th, 2018. You can do this either in person, at the Radisson Hotel, 405 20th Street East, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Michelangelo Room AB or via video-conference at one of the Federal Court locations listed below.
If the Settlement is Approved, What Happens Next?
If the Settlement is approved following the Hearings, there will be a 9-month period during which all eligible claimants can apply for compensation. All eligible claimants will need to fill out a simple form, which will be available at: https://sixtiesscoopsettlement.info.
IMPORTANT: Even if you already registered or filed an information form with the law offices of Wilson Christen LLP, or any other lawyer, you must still fill out a claimant form to receive compensation if the Settlement is approved.
