Statement on the 10th Anniversary of UNDRIP

Ten years ago the United Nations General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

The National Indigenous Economic Board congratulates the Government of Canada for now fully supporting the declaration without qualification. The Board acknowledges the recent steps taken by the Government of Canada to implement UNDRIP; however, much work remains to be done to achieve the goals outlined in the declaration.

Implementing UNDRIP will require the collaboration of all parts of Canadian society, and we look forward to participating in the process.
