Rights of Indigenous Women

Some Progress
Little Progress

42 Years

At the current rate of progress the Calls to Action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission will not be fully implemented for another 42 years, until 2065.

— Carol McBride, President of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, 2022
