Appeal Hearing

On Thursday, November 13, 2014, the Ontario Divisional Court will hear Canada’s appeal of the September 27, 2013 decision of Justice Belobaba.

The hearing will take place at Osgoode Hall, 130 Queen Street West, commencing at 10:30 am. Those seeking to attend should come much earlier as all persons must check through court security.

This is the appeal about 16,000 Aboriginal children who lost their identities as aboriginals between 1965 to 1984 in Ontario.

This is the case where two judges of the Ontario Superior Court have approved the action as a class proceeding so that the interests of these 16,000 Aboriginal children, who lost their culture and identity, are not forgotten.

Both judges dismissed Canada’s request of the Court to throw the case out as not disclosing any reasonable cause of action.

The hearing is open to the public. Check this website at the beginning of November. We will confirm the court room address. Send us an email at or contact Ms. Graham at 416-956-5625 to let us know if you will be attending, and thank you.
