The Government of Canada has announced the 2021-2022 Capacity-Building Funding for An Act Respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis Children, Youth and Families.

The act enables Indigenous groups, communities or peoples that hold rights recognized and affirmed by section 35 of the Constitution Act,1982 (thereafter referred to as “Indigenous groups, communities or peoples”) to exercise jurisdiction over child and family services.

Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) recognizes that not all Indigenous groups, communities or peoples have the same readiness or resources to exercise jurisdiction under the act.

As part of the Government of Canada’s funding commitment to support the implementation of the act, funding is available to support Indigenous groups, communities and peoples and their Indigenous governing body wishing to:
a) explore readiness to exercise jurisdiction;
b) develop Indigenous child and family service legislation, systems, and programs prior to entering into coordination agreement discussions.
