|1. INAC's NAO, in collaboration with IRS, should consider where the ICS contribution and urban Inuit may be best supported within the federal family. This consideration should take account the various evaluation and research exercises pertaining to urban Aboriginal people, which are to be completed during 2010-11, including information on the evolving needs of Inuit living in urban communities. The option of transferring the funding associated with the ICS authority to the Basic Organizational Capacity (BOC) funding for TI should also be explored as both authorities essentially support core activities.
- NAO will engage IRS in an examination of the feasibility of transferring the funding associated with the ICS authority to the BOC.
- In addition, NAO, in collaboration with IRS, will consider where the ICS contribution and urban Inuit may be best supported within the federal family taking into consideration findings from other evaluation and research exercises pertaining to urban Aboriginal people, as well as any other information deemed important.
|May 15 – July 31, 2010
Consideration will begin immediately, and will take into account findings from the evaluation and research exercises. It is anticipated that this work will be concluded by the end of the fiscal year 2010-2011.
As of 30/09/2011: Inuit Relations and NAO continue to examine processes and options for transferring the authority associated with ICS.
AES: No decision has been taken
|2. In the short term, INAC's NAO and IRS should clarify and document the roles and responsibilities of their respective organizations vis-à-vis the ICS contribution and its recipient(s) and determine how best to improve recipient reporting so as to better align with current performance measurement requirements.
- NAO and IRS will jointly develop a document outlining the roles and responsibilities of their respective groups vis-à-vis the ICS contribution and its recipient(s).
- Provide such direction to the recipient.
|May 15 - June 30, 2010
As of 30/09/2011: 2011-2012 Contribution arrangement was signed between NAO and Tungasuvvingat Inuit. Establishment of roles and responsibilities are subject to results of recommendations #1.
