Embedded Forced Assimilation Barriers (EFABs)
Canada formally announced an end to its policy of Aboriginal assimilation in June
of 2008. Unfortunately, the policy of assimilation is still continued through the
functioning of embedded forced assimilation barriers (EFABs). EFABs are active policies,
laws, regulations and services that were created within the policy framework of forced
Aboriginal assimilation to do the work of assimilation. EFABs have not been identified
and removed from the legislative framework of Canada.
