IAP Deadline Extended for Individuals Who Attended Mistassini Hostels

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - April 23, 2013) - The deadline for individuals who attended the Mistassini Hostels in Northern Quebec to apply for compensation under the Independent Assessment Process (IAP) has been extended to September 2, 2013.

The Mistassini Hostels were added to the list of eligible Indian Residential Schools under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement in August 2012. In March 2013, a Quebec Superior Court judge issued an order extending the application deadline under the Independent Assessment Process to September 2, 2013 for individuals who attended the Hostels.

IRSAS is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal that administers the Independent Assessment Process. It operates independently from the parties to the 2007 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, including the Government of Canada.

As of March 31, 2013, IRSAS had received 37,716 applications for compensation under the IAP. 20,413 cases have been resolved and more than $1.952B has been paid out in compensation by the Government of Canada.
