In January 2016, after almost nine years of litigation, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal found that the Government of Canada is discriminating against First Nations children in the provision of child welfare services.

Join Executive Director of the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society, Dr. Cindy Blackstock, and counsel for the Society, Sarah Clarke, as they share the practical, political, and procedural lessons learned in this groundbreaking case, and gather insights on how those lessons apply to current and potential future human rights applications on behalf of First Nations youth and communities.
