Attend or Schedule a Presentation

At the invitation of local Chiefs and community leaders, Gowling WLG held dozens of presentations across Canada to share information and answer questions about the Indian Day School Class Action.

Class Counsel is now working with the claims administrator, Deloitte, to schedule a series of information and support sessions in communities across the country. A list of information sessions can be found below and will be updated as sessions are confirmed.

If you are interested in hosting a presentation in your community, please contact: Vanessa Lessard at
