Our progress together
The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act is the government's roadmap to implement lasting reconciliation, healing and cooperative relations.
We are working with Indigenous partners to renew relationships based on the recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnership.
We help provide tools, programs and resources that support the reclamation, revitalization, maintaining and strengthening of Indigenous languages in Canada.
We work with Indigenous partners to provide programs and services that support Indigenous businesses, develop land on reserve and assist in land management strategies.
We support First Nations elementary and secondary education, and distinctions-based strategies for First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation post-secondary students.
