Boarding Homes Class Action

July 27 @ 8:00 am - September 8 @ 5:00 pm

The Indian Boarding Home Program was an educational program in which the Government of Canada placed children from First Nations communities and Inuit villages in other communities (usually non-Indigenous) to stay with private families for the purpose of attending school. The class action alleges that Canada‚Äôs actions in creating, operating, and maintaining the Indian Boarding Home Program were wrong. These actions created an environment where children were abused, harassed, and suffered other harm. The prolonged absence from family and community also caused a loss of culture, language, and community bonding. 

If you or one of your family members were in a home boarding program you will want to connect. The website is www.boardinghomesclassaction.com
