Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples has been deeply troubled. With reconciliation, we have a real opportunity for change. Add your name:
We’re committed to a true nation-to-nation relationship with principled reconciliation and recognition of Indigenous rights at its core.
Decades of Liberal and Conservative governments have denied Indigenous communities basic human rights like clean water, health care, and quality education. Across Canada, on-reserve child poverty is more than 50%. And people are forced to live in unsafe housing conditions with exposure to harmful mould that is hurting families and causing serious illness in children and seniors.
Enough is enough. It’s time for Canada to support Indigenous communities with respect and real action.
Our plan puts equal partnership and equal funding at the heart of everything we do. We’re committed to providing safe housing, clean drinking water, and access to health care to every Indigenous community.
Under our plan, we’ll work with Indigenous communities to close the education funding gap and end the discrimination against Indigenous children that has gone on for far too long. We’ll fully adopt and implement United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), along with the recommendations of The Truth and Reconciliation Commission and The National Inquiry of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
It’s time for Canada to have a real nation-to-nation relationship with Indigenous peoples – and that’s exactly what Jagmeet and our NDP Team is dedicated to building. Add your name today.
