60's Scoop Compensation On Its Way

Posted on Friday, October 6, 2017 07:21 AM

Children of the 60's Scoop are being compensated by the Canadian government.

The term refers to Indigenous children who were taken from their homes and put in non-Aboriginal foster homes.

The settlement indicates that many suffered emotionally, mentally and physically.

Part of the agreement includes a $50-million fund by the government that will provide reconciliation, and access to healing and education.

An additional $500-$750 million will be paid to qualified claimants from 1951 to 1991 for compensation.
