The Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) concerns government policy with respect to the original historical nations of this country. Those nations are important to Canada, and how Canada relates to them defines in large measure its sense of justice and its image in its own eyes and before the world.
The RCAP was established by Order in Council on August 26, 1991, and it submitted its report in October 1996.
RCAP was a comprehensive report on issues relating to Aboriginal peoples in Canada in 1996. This database provides access to documents, intervenor project submissions, publications, research reports and hearing transcripts related to RCAP, as well as the final report.
