About the Settlement

On December 22, 2021, the Courts approved a Settlement between Canada and certain First Nations and their members who were subject to a drinking water advisory that lasted at least one year between November 20, 1995 and June 20, 2021. 

The Settlement includes compensation for individuals and Impacted First Nations subject to a drinking water advisory during this timeframe, along with commitments to fund the construction, operation, and maintenance of infrastructure to help Class Members enjoy regular access to safe drinking water in their homes.
