The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has ordered the federal government to pay compensation to a huge number of First Nations children, youth and families harmed by the child welfare system.

First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada tweeted: “In the child welfare case ongoing since 2007, the CHRT found Canada to have wilfully & recklessly discriminated against First Nations kids resulting in a “worst-case scenario” under the CHRA.”
