Man's residential school claim rejected, then identified for compensation, then rejected again


February 4, 2020

Percy Wallace said he felt renewed hope when he heard his previously rejected residential school settlement claim was one of over 200 that would be compensated — a hope that was soon dashed after Crown-Indigenous Relations officials again turned down his claim.

Wallace, 56, had been a victim of a student-on-student sexual assault at the Sechelt residential school in British Columbia, but his claim through the Independent Assessment Process (IAP), the compensation adjudication body that was created through the residential schools settlement agreement, was rejected in 2012.
