This certified class action is brought on behalf of anyone who attended at any Indian Residential School, for any times they attended as a “Day Scholar” (i.e. non-resident student), as well as their children, and the bands within communities that contained a Residential School.  The lawsuit claims that Canada acted unlawfully and harmed those who attended at the Residential Schools, as well as their children and band communities because the Schools were used to attempt to eliminate aboriginal languages, cultures and traditions. The action also claims that many people who attended the Schools were subjected to mental, emotional and spiritual abuse, for which compensation is claimed.
