(Musqueam Territory, Vancouver, BC – March 1, 2018) – The BC First Nations Leadership Council (FNLC) welcomes today’s introduction of Bill C-92, An Act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families. Critical aspects of this legislation are its development between federal and Indigenous partners, and that it seeks to affirm Indigenous peoples’ inherent right to exercise jurisdiction over child and family services.
