Sixties Scoop Settlement information session scheduled for Prince George next month

An information session for the Sixties Scoop Class Action Settlement has been slated for Prince George early next month.

Between 1951 and 1991, countless Indigenous peoples in Canada were adopted by or placed in the care of non-Indigenous families, resulting in the loss of cultural identity.

As the result of a class action lawsuit, a settlement was reached with the Federal Government that could see those affected by these mass adoptions eligible for up to 50 thousand dollars in compensation.

A number of information sessions are now being held across Canada to help residents determine whether they are eligible and assist them with filing claims papers.

These sessions will take place between December 17th and April of next year, with the closest being held at the Prince George Aboriginal Friendship Centre on January 7th.
