Indigenous sovereignty is a foundational principle of Indigenous rights and is fundamental to reconciliation. The constitutional imperative of modern treaties represents a sharing of power – a sharing of sovereignty - between Indigenous Nations and governments. This year’s annual report highlights this important aspect of treaty negotiations.
This year marked significant progress in treaty negotiations and rights recognition. Longstanding issues that have burdened the treaty negotiations process are finally addressed through policy changes and assurances from the federal and provincial governments. The Treaty Commission's 2019 annual report celebrates the new era of Indigenous rights recognition in BC.
This year’s report covers how modern treaties fit within new policy initiatives, and how negotiations are already providing flexible and innovative answers to many of the important questions on Indigenous rights.
