Independent Assessment Process (IAP) or Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

If you made an IAP or ADR claim for compensation for residential school abuse, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement says that you can save your IAP or ADR records for history, public education and research at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR). This website can help inform your decision. What are my choices for my IAP or ADR records?

You can:

  • Do nothing: your records will remain confidential and will then be destroyed on September 19, 2027
  • Get a copy for yourself to keep or share with others (Request Form , also found at the end of this page)
  • Preserve them for history, public education and research at the NCTR (Consent Form, also found at the end of this page)
  • Get a copy for yourself and preserve them for history, public education and research at the NCTR

The IAP is the Independent Assessment Process for compensation claims of abuse at residential schools. The ADR was the earlier Alternative Dispute Resolution process.

The Pamplet (found below) provides more information on the Notice Program and the Poster (found below) can be printed to promote the Notice Program.
