Settlement process retraumatizes some residential school survivors, report says


February 21, 2020

Some survivors of the residential school system say they felt frustrated and retraumatized by the bureaucratic nature of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (IRSSA) process, a report released this week says.

Survivors who spoke with the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, which led the review and produced the report, said while they felt their stories were finally heard, they often felt "shuffled through the process," said Ry Moran, the centre's director.
