NFU Urges MPs to support Bill C-262, United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act

Media Release
(September 12, 2017 – Saskatoon) – The National Farmers Union (NFU) supports and urges Members of Parliament to vote in favour of Bill C-262, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act, which calls upon the Canadian government to fully adopt and implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

Bill C-262 would require the Government of Canada to follow up its official endorsement of the UN Declaration with action to bring the laws of Canada into compliance with the UNDRIP.

The UNDRIP, a global human rights instrument adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, establishes an agreed-upon standard for treatment of Indigenous peoples, stating that the rights contained within it “constitute the minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well-being of the indigenous people of the world.” (more…)
