    Jonah v. Attorney General of Canada

    Provincial, Territorial, Public or Religious Aboriginal Day School

    This class action seeks to compensate people subjected to the Indian Act who, between 1906 and 2014, attended a provincial, territorial, public or religious Aboriginal Day School located in an aboriginal community (reserve or indian settlement), as well as their family members, for the psychological, physical and sexual abuse committed there. It also seeks the award of punitive damages.

    On December 18, 2020, the plaintiff, represented by Dionne Schulze and Trudel Johnston & Lespérance, filed a re-amended application for authorization to bring a class action in the Superior Court against the Attorney General of Canada.

    This request has been amended in order to better represent the interests of class members and so as not to interfere with the settlement agreement of a class action lawsuit regarding federal Aboriginal Day Schools before the Federal Court.
