Service Description

Provides eligible former residential school students with access to emotional health and wellness support services, including:

  • Professional counseling
  • Emotional support
  • Cultural support provided by Elders
  • Transportation.


All former Indian Residential School students, regardless of the individual's status or place of residence within Canada, who attended an Indian Residential School listed in the 2006 Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement, are eligible to receive services from the Resolution Health Support Program.

Services are also available to family members of former Indian Residential Schools students. The family of former students is defined as:
- spouse or partner;
- those raised by or raised in the household of a former Indian Residential School student; and,
- any relation who has experienced effects of intergenerational trauma associated with a family member's time at an Indian Residential School.

Indigenous Services Canada verifies eligibility of persons requesting IRS RHSP services with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, which holds data on former students who attended those Indian Residential Schools that are part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.

Application Process

Contact the Resolution Health Support Program Regional Office in your Province or Territory.

When you call the Indigenous Services Canada regional office, they will request your name and date of birth in order to confirm that you are eligible to access services under the Indian Residential School Resolution Health Support Program. If you are a family member of a former student, the name and date of birth of the family member who attended residential school will be required to confirm your eligibility.

Once eligibility is confirmed, the Indigenous Services Canada official will work with you to arrange the health support services you have requested.
