Some students left out of Indian Day School settlement speaking out

Some students who were sent to Indian day schools are speaking out after being left out of a massive settlement that was approved this summer.

The federal court approved a class action settlement for survivors of these schools that were run by Canada.

That settlement will cost the federal government billions of dollars – bigger than the residential school settlement.

More than 130,000 people who went to 720 schools across Canada could be eligible for compensation.

But some students are being left out.

    I was told I couldn’t claim for the Day School Settlement, because I received a settlement for Independent Assessment Process (IAP). I find that unfair, I never thought that there would be a Day School Settlement back when I signed the form. I felt that I had no other choice than to sign the document.
