Join the fight for justice.
The Île-à-la-Crosse Residential Boarding School was operated by the Roman Catholic Diocese, largely funded by the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, and remained in operation until the mid-1970s.
For over 100 years, Métis children were taken from their loving homes and forced to attend the school. They’ve reported stories of sexual and physical abuse and neglect perpetrated by the priests and instructors just like those experienced in other residential schools across Canada.
Île-à-la-Crosse Survivors - have not been recognized.
A new action filed in court is hoped to prompt both the Federal and Provincial Governments to at last meet with Survivors, work toward a resolution and recognize the harms they suffered, failing which the matter will go to court.
Each day we lose more Île-à-la-Crosse School Survivors. We must act now to acknowledge their story and allow them to move forward and heal.
Now is the time to recognize the injustice.
Governments – settle this now. Recognize. We stand with our Survivors. Their strength is our strength, and the strength of the Métis Nation is with them.
