British Columbia is changing provincial legislation to remove barriers for Indigenous People.(October 26th, 2022).
“This is a pivotal shift toward real and meaningful change that respects Indigenous rights and improves services and supports for Indigenous children, youth and families,” said Premier John Horgan.These amendments will respect the inherent rights of Indigenous communities to provide their own child and family services, and to keep Indigenous children safely connected to their cultures and their communities. As we saw in many of the texts we studied, residential schools removed children from their culture and families. In light of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Report, this is a ray of hope for Indigenous people.
