There are some very dedicated people who are involved in that process, I must say. It's a claimant-centred, non-adversarial, out-of-court process for the resolution of claims of sexual abuse, serious physical abuse, and other wrongful acts suffered at Indian residential schools. It was part of the settlement agreement as an enhanced alternative dispute resolution.
Claims under the independent assessment process and remaining alternative dispute resolution claims are resolved by independent adjudicators. Awards are determined using a compensation framework set out in the settlement agreement and approved by the courts. Since we had an increased volume of applications and we wished to complete the assessment process in a timely manner, we increased the number of claims resolved through hearings in 2012-13. This resulted in a higher number of awards and created a funding pressure for this fiscal year of $124 million. I call that expediting.
