Choose Stevens & Company Law to Submit Your Indian Day School Survivor Claim

Posted:  Apr 26, 2021

Stevens & Company Law provides a number of services to those filing their claim as part of the ongoing Canada-wide class action lawsuit seeking financial compensation for Indian Day School Survivors. Before deciding whether or not to make a claim as an Indian Day School Survivor, potential claimants should be aware of the eligibility requirements detailed below.  



All attendees of Indian Day Schools in Canada from 1920 until their closure may be eligible for financial compensation. As part of the settlement agreement with the Government of Canada, a minimum of $10,000 has been set aside for persons who experienced trauma and harm while attending a Day School. Those who experienced physical or sexual abuse while attending a day school may be eligible for additional compensation of up to $200,000. 



As an Indigenous-focused law firm, Stevens & Company Law understands the deeply traumatic experiences of Indian Day Schools to survivors and their families and communities. Our group of legal professionals is highly experienced in seeking compensation for members of the Indigenous community, with over $2.1 million in submitted claims.



Stevens & Company Law charges just 5% of your compensation for its services - significantly less than many other law firms. This 5% fully covers the costs of your legal representation, including time, resources and all expenses. 



Our founder Sam Stevens has been practicing law since 1984 and will be heading all Indian Day School settlement claims. Sam is an Elder of the Annishnawbeg Nation and has spent 10 years working in Residential School claims from 2006 to 2016.
