Legislation > Box 67 – Row 1 > Recognizing and protecting Indigenous peoples’ human rights

Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act

BC’s new law recognizes and protects the human rights of Indigenous peoples and will help to build a stronger BC. It makes sure Indigenous peoples are part of the decisions that affect them, their families, and their territories. It provides a way forward on reconciliation with a plan that works for everyone in BC. Indigenous peoples and the BC government are building a better future together. That means good jobs and opportunities that benefit us all, while protecting the land, water, and air.
