VIDEO PLAYLIST: Indigenous Rights – I am a Witness
In 2007, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society and the Assembly of First Nations filed a human rights complaint against the Government of Canada. They alleged that Canada’s failure to provide equitable and culturally based child welfare services to First Nations children on-reserve is discrimination on the basis of race and ethnic origin. The Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruled on the First Nations child welfare case in January 2016.
In October 2014, KAIROS hosted an evening of solidarity on the eve of final arguments before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal. Leaders and representatives from all of KAIROS’ member churches attended this event.
