Despite a rejection by First Nation leadership and youth, much of the federal government's Rights Framework has proceeded, even without legislation. 

Building on our June 2018 report, Canada's Emerging Indigenous Rights Framework: A Critical Analysis, we continue the conversation with a series of multi-media tools: videos from our launch event panel discussion on the Trudeau government's record; a podcast answering crowd-sourced questions on the Framework; and a comic explainer that breaks down why the Framework was shelved and possibilities for the future.

As the 2019 federal election looms, this is an opportunity to hold the federal government accountable for the commitments made and any progress (or lack thereof) over the past 3-4 years.
