Canada ordered to fund indigenous child welfare - again

The Canadian government has failed to implement a legally binding decision ordering it to provide equitable funding for Indigenous child welfare services, the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal has said.

In a decision released on Thursday, the tribunal stated that Ottawa has failed to grasp "the seriousness and emergency of the issue" by not complying with a 2016 order to ensure indigenous child welfare services were properly funded.
