The Declaration can guide governments, communities, schools, industries and individuals in in building relationships with Indigenous peoples based on partnership and mutual respect.
Because it provides “the necessary principles, norms, and standards for reconciliation to flourish in twenty-first-century Canada”. (Truth and Reconciliation Commission)
Why is the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples #UNDRIP important for #reconciliation and Canada?
It was particularly important for the Department to apply a #GBAplus lens to the 2020 State of the Criminal Justice System Report to assess how the system is working for women relative to men. ow.ly/xHCs50DZkGU
Applying a #GBAplus approach to our work in monitoring and improving the Canadian criminal justice system is critical in understanding the experiences of those involved in the justice system.
Language, by nature, evolves and changes over time. Talking about the words we use provides a great opportunity to more deeply understand and address our needs as Canadians. Check out @CRRF for more definitions: ow.ly/6V0z50DZ1IY 7/7

'Marginalized' is often used in conjunction with racialized to include communities such as LGBTQ2+ people and persons with disabilities who also experience systemic discrimination. 6/7
Retweeted by Justice Canada
The term 'racialized' is being more often used in its in place. Racialized acknowledges that race is a social construct, leading to racism, and racial prejudices being applied to certain groups of people. 5/7

It doesn’t acknowledge the specific needs/realities of the communities that it includes. It also assumes that whiteness is the standard. 4/7
Retweeted by Justice Canada
As Canada becomes more aware of how it has overlooked racialized groups through history, and as its immigration policies have allowed more diversity, it has become clear that the term has flaws. 3/7

The mandate of the Working Group on Indigenous Populations was to develop a set of minimum standards that would protect Indigenous peoples.
At the @UN, the idea of the Declaration started to take form in the 1980’s with the creation of a Working Group on Indigenous Populations, but Indigenous peoples around the world had started to advocate for the respect of their human rights well before that.
The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is the result of decades of work by Indigenous leaders around the world including First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation leaders from Canada.
#COVID19 was officially declared a pandemic one year ago today. It has taken and continues to take a heavy toll on all of us. We express condolences to all who have lost family and friends to COVID-19. We honour their memory.
Today, one year after @WHO declared #COVID19 a pandemic, Canada honours every individual who lost their life to this disease, and recognizes all who have been impacted by the pandemic. Read Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement: ow.ly/K49P50DWbgM

Implementing #UNDRIP will take time as there is much work to do. But we are not starting from scratch. Over the past few years we have worked with Indigenous partners to reflect #UNDRIP in new laws on Indigenous languages, and child and family services.
Last December, we introduced #BillC15. If passed, this bill would require us to collaborate with Indigenous peoples to ensure federal laws are consistent with the Declaration and develop an action plan.
