Residential Schools Settlement Update for August 15th, 2007
You may be curious as to what happens after the Opt Out deadline passes. The settlement indicates that if less than 5,000 eligible CEP recipients Opt Out then the claims process may begin. If, however, 5,000 or more eligible CEP recipients Opt Out then Canada may cancel the settlement in its entirety. If the claims process commences after the Opt Out period ends, those persons who are listed in the Notice Administrator’s database will automatically receive a claim form in the mail sometime after September 19th, 2007. Please check back next week for more information.
The next status update will be available on August 22nd, 2007.
