British Columbia has become the first province in Canada to formally implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Dubbed Bill 41, the legislation passed the committee stage and third reading at the B.C. legislature unanimously.

The legislation, which will apply to all existing and yet to be introduced legislation, requires that Indigenous peoples are included in all decision making that impacts their rights. It also calls for a government action plan on how the objectives of the declaration are being met, according to Global News.

The legislation was developed in collaboration with the First Nations Leadership Council at the direction of First Nations.

U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order last Tuesday which created a Task Force on Missing and Murdered Native Americans and Alaska Natives. The Task Force will create new methods to investigate new and unsolved cases as well as review cold cases. 

It is estimated by the National Institute of Justice that 1.5 million Indigenous women have experienced some form of violence in their lifetime. Trump told reporters his government is taking strong action against, quote, “this terrible situation.”

Trump was joined by many Indigenous representatives to sign the bill, which expires in two years.
