The British Columbia government has released a five-year action plan towards implementing its law on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The government’s report, which includes 89 goals, says the province is committed to changing the trajectory of history through coherent, concrete and co-operative action with Indigenous Peoples.
In 2019, B.C. was the first jurisdiction in North America to adopt the declaration, which requires governments to obtain free, prior and informed consent before taking actions that affect Indigenous Peoples and their lands.
