Sixties Scoop Survivors
About The Sixties Scoop
The Sixties Scoop was a dark chapter in history that forcibly separated Indigenous children from their families, culture, and identity, leaving lasting scars on survivors and their communities.
At Gluckstein Lawyers, we are dedicated to amplifying the voices of Sixties Scoop survivors, offering legal support, and fostering a path to healing.
The Sixties Scoop's impact on Indigenous communities is undeniable, and our mission is to provide unwavering assistance while raising awareness about the injustices that transpired.
Gluckstein Lawyers – Land Acknowledgement
We, at Gluckstein Lawyers would like to begin by acknowledging that our office is situated on the traditional territory of the Wendat, Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
This land is covered by the 1740 Dish with One Spoon Covenant between the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee binding them to share the territory and protect the land and resources, as well as Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Williams Treaties signed by multiple Mississauga and Chippewa bands.
As a law firm operating in Toronto and throughout Ontario, we recognize our responsibility to honor and respect the enduring presence and cultural contributions of Indigenous peoples. We are committed to fostering an awareness of Indigenous rights, promoting reconciliation, and actively engaging in truly meaningful partnerships with Indigenous communities.
