Peguis First Nation in Treaty 1 territory is one step closer to taking control of its own child welfare services.

The largest First Nation in Manitoba is the latest community to take advantage of Bill C-92, an act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Metis children, youth and families.

A draft legislation titled Honouring our Children, Families and Nation Act has been created, also known as Peguis CFS law, and once enacted will see Peguis have jurisdiction to its members across Canada.
