Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the UN Declaration Act (rebroadcast)

  • This event has passed.

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (the Declaration) is a comprehensive international human rights instrument for Indigenous peoples around the world. In Canada, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (UN Declaration Act), which came into force in June 2021, provides a legislative framework to advance the implementation of the Declaration at a federal level, as a key step in renewing the Government of Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples.

This event features a panel discussion with First Nations, Inuit and Métis experts as well as senior federal government officials who will provide an overview of both the Declaration and the UN Declaration Act with a focus on their role in providing a framework for reconciliation. Learn about the Government of Canada’s obligations in relation to supporting the implementation of the Declaration at the federal level, in consultation and cooperation with Indigenous peoples.

This event is presented in partnership with the Department of Justice Canada.

Congratulations to the 11 graduates of the first ever FNPSS Foundations of First Nations Administration course. The BC First Nation senior administrators spent 7 weeks meeting 3 times a week on Zoom and completed the program with a week of in-person learning and networking.

“I enjoyed the ability to share stories with others who are in the same position and going through the same things. It is good to know we are not alone.”

“I have raved about the course to all my directors and truly believe that everyone is eligible should attend in order to improve their understanding.”

Tell us how we can improve the Knowledge Network to better serve First Nations in BC.

The First Nations in BC Knowledge Network (ow.ly/9QRp50K0xX2) is a central place for First Nations to share ideas, tools, and best practices on areas of governance and community development toward independence and self-determination.

We invite you to tell us what the revitalized site could do better. Your ideas will help shape how we utilize this tool to advance our work and support Nations with capacity building now and into the future. Get involved in this meaningful website revitalization by taking a short survey and/or participating in a focus group.
