Ottawa – Members of the media are invited to the third in a series of Policy Options breakfasts on key issues that could — or should — be part of the debate in the 2019 federal election.
This event, held in partnership with the Max Bell School of Public Policy and in collaboration with the Yellowhead Institute, will focus on Indigenous-Crown relations. The Liberal government’s 2015 election commitments included renewing the nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous peoples and committing to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission‘s 94 Calls to Action. The government vowed to transition away from the Indian Act and adopt a new approach to recognizing the inherent rights of First Nations. Now, as the next election approaches, how much meaningful change has occurred in this critical policy area? Has there been progress in fundamental areas such as restoring Indigenous land and implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples? What is the state of Indigenous-Crown relations?
Jennifer Ditchburn, editor-in-chief of Policy Options, will moderate the discussion.
