Canada Forcibly Removed Indigenous Children from their Families

Between 1960’s-80’s, tens of thousands of Indigenous children across the country were forcibly taken away from their parents and placed in white foster families in order to erase their national identities. This federally-sanctioned practice has led to the children suffering psychological harm and is known as “The 60s Scoop”.

Survivors and their families have been battling the courts for recognition of this criminal policy and for compensation, and the battle is far from over.
