**Thursday May 9th at 8:30 am BC Time Kukpi7 Wayne Christian will be making a Submission to Canada's House of Commons Standing Committee Indigenous and Northern Affairs on behalf of the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council and Splatsin on the newly proposed Bill C92. Bill C- 92 is an Act Respecting First Nations, Inuit and Metis children youth and families. **

Bill C-92 seeks to:

  • affirm the rights of First Nations, Inuit and Métis to exercise jurisdiction over child and family services; and
  • establish national principles such as best interests of the child, cultural continuity and substantive equality to guide the interpretation and administration of the Bill.

These principles would guide Indigenous communities and provinces and territories on the delivery of child and family services to keep families together and reduce the number of Indigenous children in care.
