The Latest

Bill C-61, the Anishinabek Nation Education Agreement (ANEA) Act, was introduced in the House of Commons by Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs, on October 5, 2017.

The Introduction and First Reading in the House of Commons is the first step to the ANEA Act becoming a law.

It is anticipated that the ANEA Act will be approved this Fall.

In the meantime, Members of Parliament and Senators will need to know that supporting the ANEA Act is an opportunity for reconciliation and an important step in building a true nation-to-nation, government-to-government relationship.  Bill C-61 is an opportunity to support an education system designed by the Anishinabek for the benefit of the Anishinabek students today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.

You can help by supporting the ANEA Act through lobbying the Members of Parliament and Senators.
