In terms of the total amount, I'm seeing $1.3 billion to the McLean Day Schools Settlement Corporation for individual compensation of $10,000 per class member for harms associated with attendants' level one claims.

How much of that $481.2 million is to be used for legal and administrative fees?

June 16th, 2020 / 7 p.m.

Assistant Secretary, Expenditure Management Sector, Treasury Board Secretariat

Glenn Purves

That would be $69 million in class counsel for legal fees and disbursements and ongoing legal services to class members.

However, I should point out that it's not clear to me whether or not that is effectively part of the $481 million, or whether that amount is part of the broader envelope that I mentioned.

When can the claimants expect to be paid?

7 p.m.

Assistant Secretary, Expenditure Management Sector, Treasury Board Secretariat

We would have to get back to the committee on that.

How much was the contract for Deloitte for the administration of the settlement, and why was Deloitte selected?

We hear a lot about Deloitte at this committee.

7 p.m.

Assistant Secretary, Expenditure Management Sector, Treasury Board Secretariat

Glenn Purves

I don't have that information, Mr. Green. We can certainly reach out to our colleagues at CIRNAC and get back to the committee on that, if that's helpful.

7 p.m.

Okay.

As it relates to the sixties scoop settlement, the request of $260 million in the supplementaries, how many people have made a claim as part of this settlement, and when can they expect to be paid?

7 p.m.

The Chair Conservative Tom Lukiwski

That answer, I'm afraid, will have to be given in written form as quickly as possible to our clerk.

I'm glad I got on the record today, Mr. Chair. Thank you, and thank you to Mr. McCauley for being the strange bedfellow.

The Chair Conservative Tom Lukiwski

I'll make sure he is completely aware of that.

Colleagues, we are a little over time. We will be adjourning.

I will remind colleagues that we'll be back for our final virtual meeting before Parliament rises for the summer, this Friday at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. I look forward to seeing all of you again then.

Stay safe, everyone.

The meeting is adjourned.
