AFN Chief Calls 40,000 Indigenous Children In Care A Human Rights Issue


BIG RIVER FIRST NATION, Sask. — The head of the Assembly of First Nations had a receptive audience with most of Canada’s premiers Tuesday over the need to implement changes to reduce the number of Indigenous children in care.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do. We’ve got 40,000 children in care and we know that’s not acceptable,” National Chief Perry Bellegarde said after a day-long meeting Tuesday with premiers at Big River First Nation, north of Saskatoon.
