Child Welfare in Ontario
Sixties’ Scoop Records
Between 1965 and 1984, thousands of Indigenous children were removed from their homes and placed with non-Indigenous families. Those affected lost all contact with their children and families. They also lost critical connection to their language, culture and identity. A class action lawsuit was launched with the intent to compensate those affected by this period. If you were a service recipient during this period, you may be eligible for compensation. Please visit Sixties Scoop Claim & Sixties Scoop Settlement websites.
