Aboriginal People File Over 300 Complaints With Human Rights Commission
Since legislation was changed in 2008, Aboriginal people have filed over 300 complaints with the Canadian Human Rights Commission. When the Canadian Human Rights Act was amended in 2008 First Nations governments were given three years to prepare, while the legislation applied to the federal government immediately. Of the complaints filed, 162 were against First Nations governments and 150 against the federal government.
