What were the Commission’s reasons for recommending that section 67 be repealed from the Canadian Human Rights Act? What impact did the Commission anticipate the legislative change would have on First Nations communities? This 2005 report recommends that Parliament eliminate section 67 so that First Nations people living on reserve have access to the same human rights protection available to other people in Canada.
