Webinar Repeat Online

Veuillez notez, cet événement sera disponible en anglais seulement.

Air Date: This is the archived version of a program presented on April 15, 2020.
Speaker(s): Sandy Carpenter, Co-Founder, Canadian Regulatory and Indigenous Law
Format: Webinar Recording
CPD Hours: 1.5 Hours of Approved Continuing Professional Development in BC
Viewing of this recording will provide you with 1.5 hours of the ethics, professional responsibility and practice management component for your Law Society of BC reporting.

This webinar repeat will provide an introduction to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP/the Declaration) that was passed by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007. It will provide the history leading up to the passage of the Declaration, including Canada’s position as only one of four countries who voted against it. It will then address why, despite the Declaration’s goals, the Declaration is controversial and ongoing efforts to bring it into law in Canada. Finally it will review BC’s new Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Persons Act (also known as Bill 41), one of the first legislated efforts in the world to bring the Declaration into law, and efforts to implement the Declaration by the federal government.

Attendees will leave with an understanding of the significance of the Declaration, a better understanding of why some people, including Indigenous people, support the aspirations in the Declaration but are concerned about these becoming law, the legal meaning and risks associated with BC’s Bill 41, and potential future events.
