Call on Canada to uphold the UN Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
The federal government has repeatedly promised that it will full uphold and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. It’s crucial that the government now work with Indigenous peoples to develop a comprehensive plan of action to turn these promises into action.
The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples provides a way forward in finally addressing the marginalization and oppression that has caused so much harm to Indigenous peoples. Fully implementing the UN Declaration requires governments to work respectfully with Indigenous peoples and eliminate discrimination in Canada’s laws and policies.
