Waiting Period Hard On School Survivors: Lawyer

Wednesday, May 20, 2009 at 14:54



Many residential school survivors continue to have trouble applying under the Independent Assessment Process.


According to lawyer Carrie O’Shea, many people in Saskatchewan’s far north have trouble getting access to a lawyer, and therefore have issues getting the ball rolling.


O’Shea adds that for a number of people, it can be very traumatic to recount some of their experiences, and even after they begin the process, it can still take as much as a year-and-a-half to two years to see any results.


O’Shea is meeting with survivors today and tomorrow at Kitsaki Hall in La Ronge.
