Discrimination Against Canadian First Nations People

The United Nations Human Rights Committee has called Canada to immediately repeakl Section 67 of its Canadian Human Rights Act. The Committee says Section 67 excludes some Canadian First Nations people from protection under the Act and is therefore discrimination. As it stands now, Section 67 allows discrimination as long as it can be justified under the Indian Act in Canada. The Committee is also concerned that discriminatory effects of reserve memberships for some Canadian Aboriginal women and their children have not been remedied. They also pointed to the issue of matrimonial real property on reserve lands which has not been properly addressed.


See for more details of Section 67.
