November 5, 2021 (OTTAWA)— Indigenous People from coast to coast are gathered today to commence the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) 50th Annual General Assembly (AGA). This year’s AGA will give delegates the opportunity to celebrate a long and proud history of successfully fighting for the rights of off-reserve and non-status peoples. For 50 years, CAP fought the government for better protection of their rights. Some of its greatest achievements included having Metis included in the Constitution Act of Canada, the landmark CAP-Daniels decision that afforded Metis and non-Status Indians the same rights and protections as status Indians under the Constitution Act and many other rights achievements. CAP has been a tireless defender of the rights of its constituents and continues to work toward a better life for all Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
