Jean-Pierre Morin: The Reparation of Reconciliation. The Evolution of Financial Compensation to Indigenous Peoples in Canada as a Result of Colonialism

Tuesday, June 21, 2022, 7 p.m.

Since 1973, the Government of Canada has engaged with Indigenous Peoples in addressing unfulfilled legal obligations, resolving outstanding claims of financial and administrative mismanagement, and compensating First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples for the horrors of Canada’s colonial legacy of assimilation and paternalistic policies.

The history of these reparations towards Indigenous Peoples in Canada has been in a constant state of evolution as governments come to grips with the ongoing impacts of systemic racism, as well as growing awareness amongst the Canadian public. As well as an historical overview of financial compensation to Indigenous Peoples in Canada, this presentation will discuss the three levels, or types, of reparations used in this context: public apologies and compensation, litigation and historic claims.
