$20 Billion Settlement Reached in First Nations Youth Millennium Scoop and Jordan’s Principle Class Actions

Consumer Law Group is representing Victims in the claims process who form a part of the class of First Nations Youth Millennium Scoop and Jordan's Principle class action settlement.

Two class actions have been settled with the Government of Canada alleging systemic discrimination in the government’s funding and provision of child and family, and other services dating back to 1991.

By signing up with CLG you’re assured that someone from our team will be assigned to your file. They’ll reach out and guide you through the claims process every step of the way, filling out the proper documentation and ensuring that your claim is valid and complete. CLG will make every effort to guarantee that you are properly compensated and are being treated fairly by the claims administrator.

The Agreement in principle provides for 20 billion dollars to hundreds of thousands of First Nations children and family members, comprised of the following groups who may be entitled to compensation:

• Children living on reserves or in the Yukon who were removed from their homes and placed in out-of-home care at any time from April 1, 1991 to the present.

• Children who suffered discrimination by being deprived of timely essential public services and products due to the Government’s failure to respect a child-first principle now known as “Jordan’s Principle”. These children suffered denials, delays or gaps in obtaining essential public services or products from April 1, 1991 to November 2, 2017. Jordan’s Principle is named after Jordan River Anderson, who passed away in hospital in 2005 while the federal and provincial governments disputed over who should pay for his care in home.

• Certain primary caregivers of the children described above.

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal found Canada’s widespread underfunding, resulting in the removal of First Nations children living on reserves from their homes, to be wilful discrimination that warrants substantial compensation to each child and their primary caregivers from 2006 until the present. The Tribunal also found Canada’s breach of its duties under Jordan’s Principle to be wilful discrimination warranting compensation to each affected child and their families from 2007 until 2017. Canada’s application to the Federal Court earlier this year in which it sought to challenge the compensation component of those findings was unsuccessful.
