Canada Enacts Gender Equity in Indian Registration Act
Effective January 31, 2011, the Gender Equity in Indian Registration Act amends Canada's Indian Act to conform with the decision of the Court of Appeal for British Columbia in McIvor v. Canada striking down provisions of the Indian Act that resulted in loss of Indian status by descendants of Indian women who had married non-Indian men while preserving the Indian status of descendants of men who had married non-Indian women. The new law will permit eligible grandchildren of women who lost status as a result of marrying non-Indian men, estimated to number 45,000, to obtain Indian status. Mike Johanns (NE) will join Chairman Barrasso as fellow Republicans on the Committee.
