In July of 2018, O’Chiese First Nation and three other nations, Ermineskin Cree Nation, Onion Lake Cree Nation and Tsuu T’ina Nation filed an urgent action with the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (“CERD”) regarding Canada’s lack of recognition of the Treaty rights to Free, Prior and Informed Consent.

 

Canada’s international human rights commitments include adherence to the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).

 

Under ICERD Canada has promised to end racial discrimination, including specifically against Indigenous Peoples, which includes the Ermineskin Cree Nation, Onion Lake Cree Nation, O’Chiese First Nation and Tsuu T’ina Nation.

 

In particular the ICERD protects the social and economic rights of the Ermineskin Cree Nation, Onion Lake Cree Nation, O’Chiese First Nation and Tsuu T’ina Nation.

 

Please find enclosed the urgent action letter to Canada regarding the decision by Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on our Urgent Action.
