We’ve updated our online-only booklet A Guide to the Indian Residential Schools Settlement. This booklet is for Indian residential school survivors and for the advocates who help them. Written in plain language, this booklet has complete and easy-to-understand information on the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement. It also has a comprehensive “Who can help” section with resources and information for survivors on where to get support, health and healing, and where to get legal help.
The booklet has been updated to let survivors know what their options are now that the deadlines to apply to the Common Experience Payment and the Independent Assessment Process under the settlement agreement have passed.
We’ve also revised the booklet to make it easier to read, and have added some new features, like linked cross-references and clickable external links to resources.
