One Time Indian Residential School Personal Credits

Earlier this year the Government of Canada announced that eligible former Indian Residential Schools (IRS) students who qualified for the Common Experience Payment (CEP) under the IRS Settlement Agreement, may now qualify for a one time IRS Personal Credit (no cash value) for educational programs and services. The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) is not directly involved in the process, but can provide assistance in completing the paperwork requirements. All forms must be completed and returned postmarked no later than October 31, 2014. Call the AFN at 1-866-869-6789 regarding assistance in this process.
