The Government of the Northwest Territories is denying that two men were sexually abused at a government-run child welfare centre in the 1990s.

The two N.W.T. men, known as John Doe 15 and John Doe 16, are suing the commissioner of the Northwest Territories for a decade of sexual abuse they say they suffered at a former territorial child welfare facility in Inuvik between 1989 and 1999.

In court documents, the men claim they were repeatedly molested and raped by their supposed caregivers at the former Inuvik Child Welfare Centre over the span of a decade. One of the men claims a staff member forced him to pose naked for photographs and to engage in sexual acts with other children who were also residents of the centre.
