The victims of said persecution were members of Canadian military and public service organizations unjustly fired from their positions solely for being gay.

Often cited as the “gay purge,” the Canadian government targeted homosexual individuals (or individuals they believed to be homosexual) from the 1950s into the 1990s as part of a national security measure. 

Basically, the Canadian government fired homosexual men and women from their jobs because being gay was seen as a liability.  

The $100 million to-be-paid by the Trudeau government is part of a class-action lawsuit settlement eligible to former employees affected by the purge. 

Exact figures and details on the settlement have yet to be unveiled. Thousands of individuals, however, are expected to be entitled to the monetary compensation. 

News of the $100 million settlement comes as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau prepares to make a formal apology to the LGBTQ+ individuals who were victims of the Canadian government’s persecution. 

The apology is will be made today in the House of Commons. 

Not simply apologizing, the Trudeau government is also committing to spending $250,000 on initiatives designed to dismantle homophobic stigmas along with support programs for at-risk individuals. 

The criminal records of anyone convicted on the grounds of taking part in a sexual act with a member of the same sex will be erased, as per a piece of legislation expected to be tabled today. 

A celebratory commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Canadian government’s decriminalization of homosexual acts, which occurred in 1969, is also planned for 2019.
