Trudeau, Cowessess First Nation chief to sign historic child welfare law | LIVE

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Cowessess First National Chief Cadmus Delorme are expected to make an announcement and to sign a historic child welfare agreement on Tuesday. They will be joined by Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe.

Delorme spoke about the announcement on Monday, with Trudeau and Moe set to travel to the First Nation, east of Regina, to finalize the coordination and fiscal agreement.

"Since 1951, the jurisdiction of children in care was removed from Cowessess First Nation and the final decision-making responsibility and judicial decision-making power was driven by non-Cowessess First Nation laws," Delorme said in a statement.

Child welfare legislation was passed by Cowessess in March 2020 under Canada’s landmark Bill C-92, which empowers indigenous communities to reclaim jurisdiction. On April 1, the Miyo Pimatisowin Act came into effect, giving the First Nation full coast-to-coast jurisdiction over its children in care anywhere in the country. Delorme previously estimated there were roughly 165 Cowessess children in government care.

The announcement comes one month after the First Nation announced the finding of an estimated 751 unmarked graves found at the site of the former Marieval residential school.
