Budget 2019 represents the next step in the ongoing path towards reconciliation and a better future for Indigenous peoples, Northerners and all Canadians. It builds on significant investments for Indigenous peoples of $16.8 billion provided in the last 3 budgets. The 2019 funding takes further steps towards reconciliation, which include investments in priority areas identified by First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation partners.

The government is investing $4.5 billion over the next 5 years in new funding towards Indigenous peoples. This investment represents the largest single line item in this year's budget and confirms its commitment towards Indigenous peoples.
