Canada: Moving Beyond the 1965 Agreement to Improve Support to Children and Families in Ontario First Nations (Press release)
Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada – August 14, 2017
The well-being of Indigenous children and families is a priority for the Governments of Canada and Ontario. Minister Bennett reiterated the need for a full reform of the child and family services component of the 1965 Agreement. This is a critical step in prioritizing prevention services and supporting First Nations-led institutions that build on community strengths and support children so that they can grow up in a safe, healthy environment with a secure personal and cultural identity.
