Following the AFN Charter and as directed by Chiefs-in-Assembly, the AFN actively engages with Parliamentarians to advocate and advance the aspirations of First Nations. In addition, the AFN monitors and directly engages on legislation which could have impacts on First Nations rights and interests. When Parliament is in session, we provide weekly summaries of activities in the House of Commons, the Senate, and committee business.
