Indigenous Initiatives

FNMI page graphic


The Law Society recognizes that First Nation, Métis and Inuit Peoples may face unique access to justice challenges.

As the broader movement of reconciliation between Canada and Indigenous Peoples takes shape, we too are working to build bridges and common understanding through engagement and dialogue. We will use what we learn to improve our services, as well as access to our services, by Indigenous communities.
