Call to Action #29 - Settlement Agreements with Survivors
6 years after its release, I am finally digging into the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 calls to action. There are 65 days left in the year and the goal is to read and reflect on at least one call to action daily for the remainder of the year. Thank you for joining me on this journey. May our endeavour together be a catalyst for lasting progress and affect meaningful change in Canada.
Under the Justice category, the 29th Call To Action is:
“We call upon the parties and, in particular, the federal government, to work collaboratively with plaintiffs not included in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement to have disputed legal issues determined expeditiously on an agreed set of facts.”
Indigenous Watchdog Status Update: In Progress
"Government has reached settlement agreements with survivors of the Sixties Scoop, Newfoundland and Labrador Residential Schools, Indian Day Schools (as of Agreement-in-Principal on Dec. 18, 2018), Métis Nation of Saskatchewan (May 8, 2019) and Kivalliq Hall in Nunavut (April 16, 2019) that had been excluded from the TRC Settlement Agreement. The St. Annes’s Residential Schools settlement is still pending."
