The Directive on Civil Litigation Involving Indigenous Peoples will guide the Government of Canada’s legal approaches, positions and decisions taken in civil litigation involving Aboriginal and treaty rights, and the Crown’s obligation towards Indigenous peoples. The Directive is part of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada’s work to review the Government of Canada’s litigation strategy. This is to ensure the Government’s legal positions are consistent with its commitments, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and Canadian values. Consistent with the Principles Respecting the Government of Canada’s Relationship with Indigenous Peoples, the Directive emphasizes the importance of resolving conflicts expeditiously and collaboratively, reducing the use of litigation and the courts.
This report presents findings on the representation and outcomes of Indigenous people as accused in Canadian criminal courts. This is the first time that national statistics on Indigenous accused in criminal courts are reported in Canada. This study addresses four key objectives:
Identify whether the criminal court process itself contributes to the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system (CJS);
Identify disproportionality in court outcomes of Indigenous accused, compared to White accused, at key stages/decision points of the criminal court process;
Identify whether other sociodemographic variables (e.g., sex and age group) affect the level of disproportionate outcomes experienced by Indigenous people at key stages/decision points of the criminal court process; and,
Identify areas that warrant further exploration and data development. This study was a collaborative effort between the Research and Statistics Division at the Department of Justice Canada and the Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statistics at Statistics Canada.

Purpose and scope of annual reporting
Section 7 of the Act requires the Minister of Justice to, in consultation and cooperation with Indigenous peoples, report annually on progress in relation to “the measures taken under section 5 and the preparation and implementation of the action plan referred to in section 6”. These annual reports provide transparency and ensure accountability for the work to implement the Act as it progresses. This first report outlines progress made between June 2021 and March 2022 towards ensuring the consistency of laws and development of the action plan in consultation and cooperation with Indigenous peoples. This period included the creation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act Implementation Secretariat at the Department of Justice Canada, a new multi-disciplinary team, 60% of whom self-identify as First Nations, Inuit or Métis, which is now leading the federal implementation of the Act.
