$15 million collected

By on June 1, 2005

The Anglican Church of Canada’s Indian residential schools settlement fund, with a goal of $25 million, has collected nearly $15 million as of the end of the year’s first quarter. As of April 7, 2005, $14.7 million had been received from the church’s 30 dioceses and from General Synod, the national office.

About $4.9 million has been paid out to claimants who were able to prove they were the victims of sexual or physical abuse at Anglican-run schools that were part of a nationwide system of boarding schools for native children. The church ran 26 of the 80 schools that were in the system.
