Innu Day Schools

OKT Law and Budden & Associates are representing Innu Nation and 3 of its members in a proposed class action about the schools that operated in the Labrador Innu communities before the Innu took control of their own education system. Between 1949 and 2009, provincial school boards and Catholic-affiliated schools operated in the Innu communities of Sheshatshiu, Davis Inlet and Natuashish.

The case was launched in January 2024 against the Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland & Labrador.

No compensation is available through this case yet.
