MCA: Indian Residential Schools Day Scholars Settlement

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne would like to inform all Akwesasronon about the upcoming Gottfriedson et al. v. Canada Class Action. This is regarding any students who attended an Indian Residential School but went home at night. The Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc Indian Band and the Sechelt Indian Band have filed a lawsuit against Canada for loss of culture and indigenous language. Band Councils and Indigenous Nations that had at least one community member attend residential school as a day scholar or had a residential school in their community are asked to opt-in by May 31, 2022.

This class action is not directly related to the Indian Day School Settlement, the Indian Residential School Settlement, or the Sixties Scoop Settlement.

Any Akwesasronon who believe that they were a Day Scholar are asked to contact the Aboriginal Rights and Research Office at 613-575-2250 ext. 2201.
