Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl moved to reassure residential school survivors yesterday that they will get the money to which they are entitled.

“The total of the $1.9 billion that was set aside for the common experience payment for residential schools students is available to them,” he told the House of Commons. “It is being processed and the money is being delivered as we speak. Eligible students are getting their money.”
