Canada has agreed to pay 800 million Canadian dollars (C$) to survivors of a policy known as the “Sixties Scoop”. From the 1960s to the 1990s, the government took more than 16,000 Aboriginal children from their parents and resettled them in white foster homes in what a truth and reconciliation commission has said was one of several actions that amounted to a policy of “cultural genocide”.
The government has since called it “a dark and painful chapter” in the country’s history.
