About 100 residential school survivors from all over the province have gathered in Prince Albert.

The deadline is quickly approaching for survivors who want to apply for their personal education tax credit.

That is why the Prince Albert Grand Council are holding a two day information workshop about the credits.

The workshop is called “Planning New Paths Together” and features a speaker from the Assembly of First Nations as well as support workers.

The goal of the information sessions is to provide survivors with information about the personal education credit but also what their options are.

Earl Clarke, a resolution health support worker says there are different options on what they can do with the credit.

The first one would be to the claimant themselves as a survivor and then the next option would be for their children or grandchildren, and the third option would be their First Nation where they are from.”

PAGC Vice Chief Brian Hardlotte says he is recommending that the deadline date should be extended.

Information is also being provided about the Independent Assessment Process as well as the Day Scholar Process.
