On October 21, 2020, HRW released “‘My Fear is Losing Everything’: The Climate Crisis and First Nations’ Right to Food in Canada.” The 120-page report, documents the experiences of First Nations communities and outlines the ways in which the Canadian government (1) is not adequately supporting First Nations’ efforts to adapt to the mounting climate crisis and (2) is failing to do its part to reduce the global greenhouse gas emissions that are driving it.

Join Indigenous Initiatives Office at University of Toronto and Human Rights Watch to hear from one of the authors of the report, as well as community advocates working to protect their people, land and our planet.
