An information session will be held today, July 9 for members of the Sixties Scoop class action settlement at the Hotel North in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
According to a press release, Collectiva (the company administering the class action) and its First Nations' partners will hold an information to assist class members in completing their claim forms.
The Sixties Scoop Class Action concerns any registered Indian or person eligible to be registered or Inuit person who was adopted or made a permanent ward and was placed in the care of non-Indigenous foster or adoptive parents in Canada between January 1, 1951 and December 31, 1991, which resulted in the loss of cultural identity.
Eligible class members could receive compensation between $25,000 and $50,000 depending on the overall number of eligible members.
During the information session, class members will have access to professionals for answers to their questions, help in completing claim forms and financial planning information.
The session is being held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hotel North on Loring Drive. This the only session scheduled for Labrador.
