Policy Options, in partnership with the Max Bell School of Public Policy, is hosting a series of in-depth conversations on key policy issues that could — or should — form part of the debate during the federal election campaign in 2019. All the events will take place from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. at the Rideau Club, 99 Bank Street,15th floor, Ottawa.

Third event

Indigenous-Crown relations
April 2, 2019

The Liberal government’s key 2015 election commitments included renewing the nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous Peoples, and committing to the 94 calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. There were vows to transition away from the Indian Act, through a new approach to recognizing the inherent rights of First Nations. But as the next election approaches, how much meaningful change has actually occurred in this critically important policy area? Has there been movement forward in fundamental areas such as restoring Indigenous land and implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples? What is the state of Indigenous-Crown relations?

Join us for a conversation moderated by Jennifer Ditchburn, editor-in-chief of Policy Options magazine.
