Who Can Object at the Toronto Hearings on May 29th and How?

The only people entitled to object at the May 29th, 2018 Settlement hearing in Toronto are class members in the Brown v Canada action who filed a written objection with Collectiva before April 30, 2018.

A class member is defined as:

Indian children who were taken from their homes on reserves in Ontario between December 1, 1965 and December 31, 1984 and were placed in the care of non-aboriginal foster or adoptive parents who did not raise the children in accordance with the aboriginal person’s customs, traditions, and practices.

How can I object if I am not an Ontario Class Member?

If you are not a class member of the Brown v Canada Ontario class action, and you wish to object, you must do so on May 10th, 2018.  You can do this either in person, at the Federal Court in Saskatoon (520 Spadina Crescent E, Saskatoon, SK S7K 3G7) or via video-conference at one of the Federal Court locations listed below.

Please note, if you already submitted an objection in writing to Collectiva by the April 30th deadline, you do not need to appear in court or by video-conference. Your objection will be considered.
