(Ottawa) February 24, 2016 – National Chief, Dwight Dorey issued the following statement regarding the premiers’ support for the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples’ inclusion in the First Ministers’ Meeting (FMM):

“I am very pleased with the support we’ve received from the premiers regarding our inclusion,” said Dorey. “The Prime Minister promised the involvement of all five National Aboriginal Organizations in high-level discussions that affect Indigenous peoples. No one can say that climate change does not affect everyone. So, for that, and other logical reasons, I expect to be included in this year’s FMM.

“I will be in Vancouver and the Congress’ participation in these discussions will be to the benefit of all Indigenous peoples regardless of status and whether they live on- or off- reserve,” concluded Dorey.

The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples is the national voice representing the interests of Métis, status and non-status Indians, and Southern Inuit Indigenous People living off-reserve. Today, over 70% of Indigenous people live off-reserve.
