Tribunal Rules on Eligibility for Compensation for First Nations Children & Families (2020 CHRT 7)

On April 16, 2020 the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal (CHRT) issued a ruling regarding three questions related to eligibility for compensation for First Nations children and families. It follows the ruling issued in September 2019 in which the CHRT ordered Canada to compensate First Nations children and families who experienced discriminatory treatment in child welfare services or who were denied or delayed receipt of services due to Canada’s discriminatory implementation of Jordan’s Principle (2019 CHRT 39, the “compensation order").
