British Columbia: Building relationships with Indigenous peoples

As part of its work to create true and lasting reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, B.C. is committed to adopting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

This mandate aims to build renewed government-to-government relationship with Indigenous peoples based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation and partnership.

It also aims to address the consequences of colonial policies which have had ongoing negative impacts on all Indigenous peoples – First Nations, Métis and Inuit.

All provincial ministers have been tasked with moving forward on the calls to action and finding ways to implement the UN declaration by reviewing government’s policies, programs and legislation.

Implementation of these commitments is being done in partnership with Indigenous peoples.
