Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples : The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples was established by P.C. 1597, dated 26 August 1991, under Part I of the Inquiries Act and on the recommendation of the Prime Minister. The terms of reference were based on a report of the Rt. Hon. Brian Dickson, former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, dated 2 August 1991. The Commission was mandated to investigate and propose solutions to problems in the relationship among Aboriginal Peoples (First Nations, Inuit, Metis), the Canadian government, and Canadian society as a whole. In practice, this included a broad range of issues including: the scope of Sec. 91 (24) of the Constitution Act, the legal implications and status of Aboriginal treaties and modern-day agreements, the Indian Act, land and resources, economics, social and cultural issues, justice, education and health. The mandate placed emphasis on the Metis, off-reserve and Inuit peoples, including women, youth and the role of elders, as well as the situation in the North.Finding aid:(Paper) Finding aids are available.
