The settlement agreement in a class-action lawsuit launched by former students of Indian day schools has been approved by the Federal Court.

According to multiple media reports, the settlement agreement was approved Monday. Under the terms of the settlement, survivors will be able to apply for individual compensation for harm, including physical and sexual abuse, linked to attendance at one of the federally-run institutions.

The class action was launched by Garry McLean in 2009.

The settlement includes compensation for eligible survivor class members ranging from $10,000 to $200,000 based on the level of harm experienced. It also includes the creation of a Legacy Fund of $200 million to support commemoration projects, health and wellness projects and language and culture initiatives.
