60s Scoop Healing Foundation

We have to create a strength within ourselves…

We are going to be sustainable. We have and are still being affected today by the welfare system. Our strength is why we are here today…

It was not by chance, it was because one individual said, ‘enough’.
Welcome to the Sixties Scoop Healing Foundation – a new, independent organization, established through the National Sixties Scoop Settlement. Our mission is to accompany Survivors and their descendants along their healing journey by supporting cultural reclamation and reunification, holistic wellness services, advocacy, commemoration, and educational initiatives.

Our Survivor-led, volunteer board of directors was appointed in November 2020, with the mandate to make the Foundation a reality. We envision a future where Sixties Scoop Survivors are welcomed and become a community filled with healing and wellness. We envision a world that has deeper knowledge and empathy for Survivors’ experiences and histories.

Independent of government, the Foundation aims to serve all Survivors of the Sixties Scoop—Inuit, First Nations, Métis, status and non-status—in every region of Canada and beyond. We are in our early days and have much work to do in the months ahead to begin achieving the Foundation’s potential.

We invite you to join us and share your feedback as we grow.
