Starting in 1920, Indigenous students were required to attend school. Some Indigenous students attended a Federal Indian Day School or Federal Day School (“Day School”) that was funded, managed and controlled by the Federal Government of Canada (“Canada”).

The Federal Indian Day Schools Class Action Settlement Agreement (“Settlement”) provides compensation to any former day student who attended a Day School and who suffered abuse or harm when attending the school.

A list of the eligible Day Schools, along with relevant dates of their management and control by Canada, is available at www.indiandayschools.com (Schedule K of the Settlement).

Class Counsel and available legal advice: legal advice with respect to eligibility and harms experienced is available at no cost to you from Class Counsel, Gowling WLG, by contacting dayschools@gowlingwlg.com or 1-844-539-3815.
