Indigenous Peoples are an integral part of the cultural and political fabric of Canada. However, the relationship between their governance structures and how they interact with other government institutions is often misunderstood.

This fourth event in the series will discuss the link between Canada's federalism structure and its relationship with Indigenous Peoples. Panelists will speak about the architecture that forms the relationships between Indigenous governance and the federal, and provincial and territorial governments.

Participants will gain a better understanding of how federalism impacts Canada’s Indigenous population and how it can be used to uphold Indigenous rights, improve relationships and further reconciliation efforts.

This event was held in partnership with the Institute for Research on Public Policy's Centre of Excellence on the Canadian Federation.
