Supreme Court of Canada decision on and interface with the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal case on First Nations children Webinar

Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) Territory

The Our Children Our Way Society will host an online panel discussion and Q&A session on the Act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families on March 8, 2024 at 10am.

The Supreme Court of Canada’s recent ruling on the constitutionality of the act solidifies this legislated pathway to self-determination regarding child & family services. However, that pathway remains ill-defined.

Bring your questions and stories to our expert panel. Dr. Cindy Blackstock (First Nations Caring Society), Naiomi Metallic (Schulich School of Law) and Mary Teegee (Carrier Sekani Child & Family Services) will delve into your questions to provide answers and informed discussion.

Questions can be submitted in advance via email to: [email protected]
