Challenges facing Indigenous people in Canada: possible new directions

A/ Professor Dave Sangha , Professor Anita Lynn Vaillancourt

First Nations/Indigenous people have been and continue to be subjected to various and evolving forms of colonisation in Canadian society. They have experienced social, economic, and political exclusion and marginalisation from various arenas of decision-making resulting in increasingly poor health, income, educational, employment and social outcomes. Adopted as mechanisms to reclaim autonomy through self-governance, political activism and cultural reclaiming have been instrumental in supporting Indigenous people and their allies to challenge existing oppressive structures and to foster new paradigms for future growth and development.
