Representing Aboriginal People Living Off-Reserve Since 1971

The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) is one of five National Aboriginal Representative Organizations recognized by the Government of Canada. Founded in 1971 as the Native Council of Canada (NCC), the organization was originally established to represent the interests of Métis and non-status Indians. Reorganized and renamed in 1993, CAP has extended its constituency to include all off-reserve status and non-status Indians, Métis and Southern Inuit Aboriginal Peoples, and serves as the national voice for its provincial and territorial affiliate organizations. CAP also holds consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), which facilitates its participation on international issues of importance to Indigenous Peoples.

Daniels Decision

On April 14, 2016, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the Federal Government has Constitutional responsibility for Métis and non-Status Indians, marking a historic victory for Indigenous peoples in Canada and ending a 17-year legal battle.
