Sixties Scoop Settlement Agreement negotiated with the federal government offers compensation for First Nations and Inuit children taken into care between 1951 and 1991 and placed with non-Indigenous parents. Those who have signed the agreement release the federal government from further liability, but they are still able to take action against third parties. For those born in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon, this may not be possible since those areas did not have their own governments in the 1960s and would not be considered a third party. Lawyers have raised this issue. The amount of compensation received will depend on the number of claims filed. Deadline to register is August 30, 2019.
