1996 - The Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples

The Royal Commission was established after a 78-day armed standoff (the Oka Crisis) between the Mohawk community of Kanesatake, the Sûreté du Québec, and the Canadian army. The Commission visited 96 First Nation communities and held 178 days of public hearings. The Final Report included a 20-year agenda (1996-2016) for implementing changes to better the lives of Indigenous people.
