A new fiscal relationship: Engagement 2017
From Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada
Current status: Open
The engagement started on October 11, 2017.
The Government of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations are working together to establish a new fiscal relationship that moves towards sufficient, predictable and sustained funding for First Nation communities.
With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding in July 2016, a process was established to achieve this goal, which will be a key step in addressing the disparities and inequities in the socio-economic conditions between First Nations and other Canadians.
The Government of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations are seeking input from First Nations chiefs and administrators on options that are being developed by three working groups to support a new fiscal relationship. The three working groups are developing options related to sufficiency, predictability and mutual accountability that will be included in their final report.
Canada is also working jointly with First Nation signatories to 22 self-government arrangements to develop a new self-government fiscal policy framework that will enable these governments to realize the full potential of their agreements.
The Government of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations will engage with First Nation chiefs and administrators.
Through this engagement, participants will be asked to review and provide feedback on options prepared by the three working groups to support a new fiscal relationship.
