UNDRIP Implementation

National Implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

The Government of Canada made the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples into federal law in June 2021. Now, it’s creating a “National Action Plan” for applying the Declaration to federal laws, policies, and institutions. The draft National Action Plan was released in late March 2023. The AFN Yukon Region has asked Yukon First Nations citizens and governments to tell us what they would like to see included in this National Action Plan.

Following engagement, AFN Yukon developed and submitted a report with recommendations for Canada on its implementation of UNDRIP and the National Action Plan.
