Today, the Federal Court ordered that three Indigenous Police Services be relieved from compliance with Canada’s discriminatory policing program, specifically section 6 of the Terms and Conditions of the First Nations and Inuit Policing Program (“FNIPP”). The Federal Court ordered funds to flow to the three police services on the verge of ceasing operations: Anishinabek Police Service (“APS”), Treaty Three Police Service (“T3PS”), and UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service (“UCCM”). The three police services have been rescued from being forced to cease operations.
