If the National Settlement is approved following the court hearing in Toronto on May 29/30, all you will have to do to register is fill out a simple form that will be available on Collectiva’s website: https://sixtiesscoopsettlement.info
Top 3 Facts to Know About Registering:
- You Have to Fill Out the Form. Everyone will be required to fill out the Collectiva form to receive compensation. Even if you filled out the Ontario Claim form (the one formerly available on this site) or a different form in the past, you will still need to fill out this new form to get compensation.
- You Do Not Need to Pay a Lawyer. If you need any help filling out the form, or finding out if you are eligible, you can ask one of the four legal teams assigned by the court to support you and they will do it for free.
- No Papers? Register Anyway. You do not need to have your adoption or status papers to register. It will be the government’s job to find this information. Even if you don’t have these papers, you should still fill out the claimant form.
