Progress and Reporting

The Province is working with First Nations and Indigenous peoples in new and collaborative ways and building deep and lasting relationships. 

New investments in the 2021 provincial budget are making a difference in the lives of Indigenous peoples – through ongoing funding for COVID recovery, affordable housing, childcare, mental health and addictions, culturally safe health care, skills training, and economic development.

The StrongerBC Economic Recovery Plan includes significant funding to advance reconciliation and support Indigenous communities hit hard by the pandemic.

The Province is working with Indigenous peoples to implement a new First Nations Justice Strategy, improve child welfare, make innovative new agreements and combat racism.

Reconciliation is an ongoing commitment to engage as partners in ways that respect the right of Indigenous peoples to determine their own future.
