Assembly of First Nations Québec-Labrador

“Although we consider this agreement as being an important step forward, we feel that long-term reform work is still required for Jordan’s principle, and that reforming government is essential if we want to prevent any future harm to our First Nations children, youth and families. Until now, Canada’s slow pace of change on immediate relief has delayed progress on long-term reform. We expect the federal government to get it right this time. We need concrete actions, starting today”, said Ghislain Picard, Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL).
