Ensuring Real Accountability on First Nation Reserves

Published on 04/01/2016

The lack of a legal framework governing essential services on reserves leaves First Nations vulnerable to arbitrary and sudden changes of policies. The Supreme Court recently decided not to hear an appeal in which this lack of a legal framework would have been challenged. The authors explore this problem and argue that there is an urgent need for Canada’s new government, in partnership with First Nations, to take action.
