Embedded Forced Assimilation Barriers (EFABs)


Canada formally announced an end to its policy of Indigenous 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 Indigenous assimilation to do the work of assimilation. EFABs have not been identified and removed from the legislative and regulatory framework of Canada.
