Take a survey
The National Centre for Indigenous Laws (NCIL) is a direct response to the TRC’s Calls to Action, specifically #50: “In keeping with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we call upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal organizations, to fund the establishment of Indigenous law institutes for the development, use, and understanding of Indigenous laws and access to justice in accordance with the unique cultures of Aboriginal peoples in Canada”.
The NCIL will develop world-class theoretical and substantive Indigenous legal education materials and academic resources. We are currently holding engagements with the aim of raising awareness of the world’s first Indigenous Law Program at the University of Victoria and solicit feedback to inform the new National Centre for Indigenous Laws.
This survey is part of engaging and understanding the potential role of the National Centre for Indigenous Laws within Canada and beyond. It should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
