Thanks to all of you who wrote letters of support to Senators,  we are happy to report Bill C-15 passed the Senate June 16,2021, and received Royal Assent on National Indigenous Peoples Day June 21, 2021. 

Bill C-15 affirms United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (“UNDRIP”) as a universal international human rights instrument with application in Canadian law and requires the Government of Canada to take all measures necessary to ensure that the laws of Canada are consistent with UNDRIP and to prepare and implement an action plan to achieve the objectives of UNDRIP.

The work begins!
