The federal government is earmarking funds for projects that aim to build on Ottawa‘s commitment to help revitalize Indigenous legal traditions.
Justice Minister David Lametti says $918,000 will go to the Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians and Lakehead University’s law faculty over three years to support Indigenous law-making research and “lay the foundation” for an Indigenous legal institute in Thunder Bay, Ont.
“We’re confident that this funding will help make a real difference for Indigenous communities doing the sometimes challenging but important work of revitalizing their legal systems,” he said at a virtual news conference Wednesday.
