Residential School Survivor Application Deadlines

The deadline for Common Experience Payments (CEP) applications – which are available to anyone who has attended a residential school – is September 19, 2011.

The deadline for Independent Assessment Process (IAP) applications – available to residential school survivors who experienced sexual abuse, serious physical injury or "other wrongful acts" (usually very serious psychological harms or actual income loss) – is September 19, 2012.

This is the deadline to just submit the application – you wouldn’t normally have a hearing for several more months after submitting the application.
