Earlier this summer the federal government passed key pieces of legislation, like the Indigenous Languages Act, and new laws around child welfare.

But another important change quietly came into effect. Two new laws that officially made the split of Indigenous Affairs into two separate departments.

Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada, and Indigenous Services Canada, are now governed by their own separate pieces of legislation.

Naiomi Metallic is a Mi’kmaw lawyer and the author of a new article for the Yellowhead Institute called “Making the most out of Canada’s New Department of Indigenous Services Act”.

She joins APTN National News from Halifax.
