July 13, 2022, 11:59 p.m. PST, was the deadline to submit a claim for Federal Indian Day School Class Members.
An Extension Request Form is available for Class Members to submit claims from July 14, 2022, until January 13, 2023. Submit the Extension Request Form and the Claim Form no later than January 13, 2023, 11:59 p.m. PST.
The six-month extension requires Survivor Class and Family Class claimants to apply to the class action team, Gowlings, for the extension. The AFN is not a party to the settlement agreement and continues to advocate for an extension that does not require an additional request form. In the meantime, the Extension Request Form is required.
Claims support – Phone 1-888-221-2898 for questions about the Claim Form or Claims Process.
Mental Health Support – We recognize that applying for the extension may add to the stress and triggering nature of making a claim.
