The United Nations has dispatched James Anya, a law professor and special human rights envoy to assess the situation of indigenous peoples within Canada.

Anya was on hand in Ottawa this weekend and met with a Haudenosaunee delegation who raised concerns regarding border crossing, identity, missing and murdered Indigenous women, and the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The rapporteur is touring Canada over a period of nine days and is gathering information to present to the UN Human Rights Council.

Anya’s stay coincides with an October 7th Idle No More “Day of Action” which generated over 63 protests nation-wide.

The federal government will get a chance to respond to Anaya’s findings before a final report is presented to the United Nations.
