The Canadian Government is currently before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal on charges that it is racially discriminating against First Nations children and their families by providing less child welfare funding, and thus benefits, than other children receive.

This case is one of the most formally watched legal actions in Canadian history with over 4000 people and organizations committed to watching the tribunal (fnwitness.ca) and has the potential to set a precedent of equity across all services on reserves.
