Lawsuit: Manitoba Misused Indigenous Funds

Indigenous Funds Misused?

WINNIPEG - Hearings are underway into a lawsuit that claims Manitoba misappropriated money meant for Indigenous children in care.

First Nations child welfare agencies say more than $250 million was been misused.

They believe the province began clawing back funds from the federal Children's Special Allowance Act in 2006 and did not stop doing so until 2019.

The judge hearing the case could order repayment by the government as soon as the end of this week.
