On September 19, 2019 the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered the Government of Canada to provide compensation to the victims of its discrimination in the delivery of child and family services to First Nations children and the failure to abide by Jordan’s Principle. The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ordered Canada, the AFN and Caring Society to co-develop a compensation scheme for the processing of payments. At this time, the Caring Society does not have any further information on how to access compensation, as this is still being determined. Please visit for more information, including a toll free number for any questions.
