As a signatory to the International Convention of the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the federal and provincial governments are required to report to the United Nations on the progress being made in this area. Canada recently submitted its 13th and 14th reports to the Convention. ALS has filed what is referred to as a Shadow Report in response to the government's reports. It is our position that Canada and the provinces have failed to comply with the Convention as it applies to Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.
