The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision today on Indigenous self-determination represents a major victory for Inuit and the well-being of our children, youth, and families.
Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami and the Métis National Council have co-authored this paper to identify how an Indigenous human rights commission and tribunal should be established and constituted based on the tools and authorities available in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act as well as in Canadian law.
