RE: PROCESSING OF COMMON EXPERIENCE PAYMENT (CEP) APPLICATIONS
Ottawa, November 1, 2007 – On September 19, 2007 the Government of Canada began receiving applications for the Common Experience Payment (CEP) which is one element of the court-supervised Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.
As you may have already submitted your CEP application form for processing, please be assured that the government is working to process applications as quickly and efficiently as possible. Since implementation there has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the Common Experience Payment by former students, much higher than originally anticipated. Within the first six weeks the Government received almost 70,000 applications. This large volume has caused some delays in processing.
