High court dismisses Quebec’s challenge to the legislation
The Supreme Court of Canada has unanimously upheld the Trudeau government’s Indigenous child welfare law, dismissing Quebec’s appeal in a landmark opinion affirming Indigenous Peoples’ jurisdiction over child and family services.
The high court sided with the Canadian government in a decision rendered Friday morning, reversing a Quebec Court of Appeal decision to declare the law partly unconstitutional.
“The act as a whole is constitutionally valid,” the court concluded.
