Sixties Scoop Adoptees Expect Settlement Today

Sixties Scoop adoptees are waiting to hear more details about an expected $800-million settlement from the federal government today.

 

Survivors will apparently get between $25,000 to 50,000. Roughly $100 million will be dedicated to other reconciliation initiatives.

From 1965 to 1984, Indigenous children were were sent for adoption outside their communities, often ending up with white families.

Now adults, the Sixties Scoop adoptees say it resulted in culture shock that caused psychological harm that has stayed with survivors into adulthood. 

The settlement will be national in scope, and is expected to put an end to most of the 18 related lawsuits that are active throughout the country.
