Canada Pledges Billions to Fix Child Welfare System
The Canadian government agreed to pay $31.5 billion to repair the country’s discriminatory child welfare system and compensate Indigenous families.
“This is the largest settlement in Canadian history. But no amount of money can reverse the harms experienced by First Nations children. However, historic injustices require historic reparations. The agreements in principle we have signed today will support First Nations children, so that they can have the same opportunities to grow up with their families and communities thriving through their cultures and languages.” “This historic settlement of $40 billion has been a long time coming. First Nations from across Canada have had to work very hard for this day to provide redress for monumental wrongs against First Nation children. Wrongs fueled by an inherently biased system. We have a long way to go to address the poverty in our Nations. And no amount of money will ever be the right amount, nor will it bring back a childhood lost. But today is about acknowledgment, about being seen and heard.”
