First Nation Child Welfare Agreement Reached Final Reconciliation

Final settlement agreement between the federal government and the First Parliament (AFN).

Otawa, AFN, and the plaintiffs in the two class action cases reached a principle agreement earlier this year  . Both parties announced on Monday that an agreement had been reached.

Indigenous Services Canada says the reconciliation is the largest in Canadian history.

In total, $ 20 billion will be available to the following people:

  • People affected by what the government called the "narrow definition" of the Jordanian Principlesused between December 12, 2007 and November 2, 2017 .. ..
  • Children who did not receive mandatory public services between April 1, 1991 and December 11, 2007, or faced delays in access to such services. . Children covered by the contract may also be covered.

    Manitova Regional Chief Cindy Woodhouse said in a media statement that he expects money to begin to arrive next year.

    "During the negotiations, we have kept our children in mind and prayed," Woodhouse said in a statement.

    The final agreement requires approval by the Canadian Human Rights Court and the Federal Court.

    The non-binding agreement signed earlier this year includes $ 20 billion for the long-term reform of the reserve child welfare system, but the final part of that. Reconciliation has not yet been reached.

    The federal court has rejected Canada's application to consider two human rights court orders on child welfare and Jordanian principles.
