In response to Call to Action 48 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and in response to questions raised on the legal concepts known as “Doctrine of Discovery” and terra nullius, four Canadian Catholic organizations representing Bishops, institutes of consecrated life, societies of apostolic life, Indigenous People, and laity have issued two documents. Both are dated March 19, 2016, the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is the principal patron saint of Canada. The four organizations were the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Canadian Religious Conference, the Canadian Catholic Indigenous Council, and the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.
