Sixties Scoop survivors living in Quebec hope an upcoming information session will help shed light on Canada’s settlement agreement with First Nations and Inuit children who were removed from their homes and lost their cultural identities as a result.

The $875 million settlement agreement set aside $750 million for all status First Nations and Inuit children placed into foster care or adopted by a non-Indigenous parent between 1951 and 1991.
