Government Commitments to Truth and Reconciliation

Response to TRC Summary report

June 14, 2015

As a government, we will take the necessary time to review the report and its recommendations, and will work to repair and rebuild the relationship with First Nations. Our government will work collaboratively with First Nation communities to establish, develop and strengthen our relationship, and we will work with other levels of government and institutions to respond appropriately to this report.

We have been consistent in our support for a national inquiry on missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls. We are also working with our partners to end violence against aboriginal women and girls living in New Brunswick.

We are currently renewing the Enhanced Education and Service Agreements with our First Nation partners to improve outcomes for aboriginal learners. We also support the community-based Healing to Wellness Court in Elsipogtog First Nation as it incorporates First Nations practices and culture.
