History of Inequity

Canada has a long history of knowing about the inequities faced by Indigenous children and their families and choosing not to act. There are over 100 years of reports, articles, books, inquiries and commissions written by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples outlining the inequities and providing solutions. The History of Inequity timeline provides an opportunity to learn about Canada’s treatment of Indigenous children and families in a way that links lessons of history to contemporary injustices.
