Tribunal says $40B child-welfare agreement doesn't satisfy all orders

BY The Canadian Press, Oct 25, 2022 9:45 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal says a 40-billion-dollar settlement agreement announced in January over child-welfare on First Nations hasn't met all of its orders.

It is urging the parties to negotiate further.

But Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief Cindy Woodhouse says it's time for the legal wrangling to be over and for children and families to receive the compensation they are owed.

The agreement initially awarded 40-thousand dollars to each child and their families who suffered.

The tribunal appears to have an issue with exactly which children will receive the full compensation amount.
