Policy Development beyond
"Self Identification of Indigenous Identity"

In recent years, First Nations, Métis and Inuit have been asking for new mechanisms to deter FNMI Identity Fraud.  In the decades until now, the option to "Self Identify as Indigenous" was seen as an adequate means to authenticate those claiming FNMI, for inclusion in FNMI-specific programs of study or employment at all levels within Post Secondary Institutions.  It is imperative that all educational opportunities with FNMI-specific capacity, exist within a policy framework that is respectful and cognizant of FNMI Identity Fraud and its' harmful effects. 
Some institutions have responded that they "do not get into Indigenous Identity Politics" but this is not politics - it is honouring reconciliation and First Nations, Métis and Inuit.  FNMI Identity Fraud has become so rampant that the theft of resources from FNMI
 is easily in the millions each year, so this call to action and transparency - must be undertaken in an FNMI-led process as soon as possible.
True Reconciliation demands it.
