indigenous Canadian Relations

The Indigenous Services budget is designated for economic development but needs to be more comprehensive and needs to effectively impact change.  Welfare does not address pride, self-worth, and self determination.  Long term self sufficiency, which comes with meaningful employment, is the precursor to a healthy nation.  The 2020 Blockades are a serious red flag which we must heed.  Many First Nations reserves have 50% unemployment or higher.  Our Indigenous people need proper care and prioritization through technology, healthcare services, skills training and Economic Development.
