Canada’s Oath of Citizenship now officially recognizes First Nations, Inuit and Métis.

New Canadians will now make a personal commitment to observe the Aboriginal and Treaty rights of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.

The new language:

“I swear (or affirm) that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada including the Constitution, which recognizes and affirms the Aboriginal and treaty rights of first Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples, and fulfill my duties as a Canadian citizen.”

This responds to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Call to Action 94.
