The project will make recommendations for consideration to develop and implement structural solutions to achieving substantive equality for First Nations children, youth, and families. This work builds on findings from IFSD’s September 2022 report, Data assessment and framing of analysis of substantive equality through the application of Jordan’s Principle.
