Whelton Hiutin LLP Appearing in Proceeding Seeking to Extend Claim Timelines for Indian Day Schools Settlement

Whelton Hiutin LLP lawyers Richard Macklin and Yolanda Song will be appearing in Federal Court on June 12 and 13, 2023 on behalf of the Six Nations of the Grand River Elected Council to argue for an extension of the time for individuals to make claims under the Indian Day Schools Settlement Agreement. The Settlement Agreement aims to compensate survivors for the harms and abuses they suffered while attending federally-operated day schools. The basis for the extension request is that, among other things, virtually the entire claims process took place during the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented survivors from receiving the necessary notice, advice, and support to claim compensation for their harms.
