Call to Action # 13

We call upon the federal government to acknowledge that Aboriginal rights include Aboriginal language rights.

Why “Complete“?

Bill C-91 “An Act respecting Indigenous Languages” receives Royal assent on June 21, 2019. Bill C-91 states: “The Government of Canada recognizes that the rights of Indigenous peoples recognized and affirmed by section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 include rights related to Indigenous languages.”
