Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) is holding virtual engagement sessions regarding a proposed bill that would include changes to the Indian Act until November 1, 2022.

ISC is working towards introducing the bill to address the issues of enfranchisement, individual deregistration, natal band re-affiliation, and outdated and offensive language in the Indian Act.

The virtual engagement sessions on the legislation are available now until November 1, 2022. Each session will include:

  • a review of each issue and its proposed solution
  • an opportunity for dialogue
  • a brief description of the future plans to deal with other big issues
  • a virtual engagement kit, for distribution among your colleagues and communities
