Indigenous agencies take Manitoba government to court, alleging 'illegal clawback' of $266M for kids in care

Six Indigenous child and family services agencies are taking the Manitoba government to court over its long-standing practice of forcing the agencies to remit federal funds earmarked for children in care.

The group of agencies filed a notice of application Thursday at the Manitoba Court of Queen's Bench, seeking to have the clawback of the Children's Special Allowance declared illegal.
