What does the 2017 Federal Budget mean for Indigenous Peoples

Last week the Trudeau government tabled its second budget of its 4-year term with large emphasis being placed on skills and innovation that strengthen the middle classinvestments that improve infrastructure (including infrastructure on reserves and in rural and Northern) communities, and strengthening Canada at home and abroad. In this blog post we provide a round-up of funding that has been committed, what's missing, and where to go from here. 

Overall, the federal budget commits to providing $3.4 billion in new money over the next five years for First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples and communities. This money is in addition to the $8.4 billion announced in last year’s federal budget which was also spread over five years. (Source: APTN)

The two figures would bring total new federal investments targeting Indigenous peoples and communities to $14 billion by 2021-2022—two years after the next federal election. (Source: APTN)
