The federal government and 325 First Nations have reached a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit seeking reparations for the destruction of language and culture wrought by Canada’s residential school system.

The signed settlement agreement, dated Jan. 18, was filed in Federal Court on Thursday before a Friday morning hearing in Toronto. The agreement still must be approved by a judge before it can roll out.
