Indigenous Policy at a Cross-Roads: What is behind the Government of Canada’s Approach to Indigenous and Treaty Rights?

Presented by Dr. Ken Coates, Canada Research Chair and JSGS Professor

In a series of major announcements, the Government of Canada has signaled significant changes in its approach to its relations with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in Canada. Indeed, by indicating its determination to adopt the United Nations Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, to accept the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to follow core principles in its dealings with Indigenous peoples, and the development of new legal and policy framework for its relationships with Indigenous governments, Ottawa has laid out a strategy that could revolutionize the Indigenous public policy and administrative environment in Canada. This presentation places these federal developments in constitutional, legal and political context and considers the prospects for a much-needed transformation in the recognition of Indigenous and treaty rights in Canada.
