Indigenous leaders and Canadian premiers meeting

Meetings will be based around child and family services

Canada's leaders are meeting Indigenous leaders at the Big River First Nation near Debden Saskatchewan.

The meeting is expected to focus on federal changes to child and family services, aiming to give First Nations, Metis and Inuit more jurisdiction over those subjects in their communities.

In addition, it's a great forum for leaders to find ways to collaborate and help serve First Nations, Metis and Inuit families across Canada.

Leader of the Assembly of First Nations Chief Perry Bellegarde mentioned how important it is for both Canadian and Indigenous leaders to work together to implement the new federal child and family services.
