Stonechild v. Canada, 2022 FC 914
Angela Bespflug and Janelle O’Connor were successful in obtaining a order for certification in this class action against the federal government on behalf of off-reserve Indigenous children who were removed from their families and forced into non-Indigenous foster care between 1992 and 2019.
The class action seeks various damages, restitution, and recovery of specific costs on behalf of those affected by Canada’s Indigenous child welfare system.
