- Police officers on reserves will be trained to properly enforce the legislation.
- Educational materials will be available to Provincial Superior Court judges to promote informed judgements under the legislation.
- A public education and awareness campaign on the new legislation will be directed to stakeholders such as First Nation communities and individuals living on reserves so that they can better understand the rights and the protections available to them.
