ARCHIVED - Still a Matter of Rights - A Special Report of the Canadian Human Rights Commission on the Repeal of Section 67 of the Canadian Human Rights Act
In June 2008, Parliament removed section 67 from the Canadian Human Rights Act. This gave people governed by the Indian Act full access to human rights law in Canada. But how did this legislative change come to be? In this 2008 report, the Commission urgently calls on Parliament to remove section 67 from the Canadian Human Rights Act. The report also offers some suggested principles that might be taken into account when First Nations communities build their own process for resolving conflicts.
