The Trudeau government has been handed a stern order from the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal on welfare services for Aboriginal children.
In the wake of suicide attempts by youth on the Attiwapiskat reserve in Ontario, the tribunal has given Indigenous Affairs a deadline.
It says the department has two weeks to confirm it has implemented a policy designed to ensure First Nations children can access services without getting caught up in red tape.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with indigenous youth today in Saskatchewan.
