An Act respecting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) was given Royal Assent in June 2021. Entrenching UNDRIP in Canadian law demonstrates our collective commitment to upholding the promises made to Indigenous peoples. Implementation of UNDRIP also sends a powerful message to Canada’s First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples that Canada is taking meaningful steps toward truth and reconciliation.
Prioritizing and quickly implementing UNDRIP as an important step toward truth and reconciliation.
The UNDRIP Act received Royal Assent on June 21, 2021.
