“There is an unquestionable need for actionable change. This Agreement-in-Principle, while an important first step, is a non-binding agreement. A pre-agreement that simply lays out a pathway to a binding agreement to address Canada’s longstanding discrimination in First Nations child welfare and inequitable public services via Jordan’s Principle. It is only when that binding agreement has been written and signed by the Government of Canada and acted upon with great haste that First Nations children, youth and families will have a measure of assurance that actionable change is coming.”
