sixties scoop Lawsuit

TORONTO – The Sixties Scoop has been before the courts for years. Today, the court in Ontario has brought down a ruling that places families in the class action on a path toward possible compensation.

“When Canada entered into the 1965 Agreement and over the years of the class period, Canada had a common law duty of care to take reasonable steps to prevent on-reserve Indian children in Ontario, who had been placed in the care of non-aboriginal foster or adoptive parents, from losing their aboriginal identity. Canada breached this common law duty of care,” stated Justice Edward Belobaba in the court ruling issued on February 14th.
