Indigenous Relations Secretariat
The Indigenous Relations Secretariat coordinates government’s response to Indigenous matters within the province. In addition to offering a central point of contact for First Nations and Aboriginal organizations, the Secretariat provides a means by which to promote inter-departmental communication and cooperation on governmental matters related to Indigenous Relations. The Secretariat supports work conducted under the Partnership Agreement with the Mi’kmaq and Canada, continues to participate in a contribution agreement with the Native Council of PEI, and provides annual grant funding to the Aboriginal Women’s Associate of PEI. The Secretariat represents PEI at various inter-governmental tables including:
- Federal-Provincial-Territorial-Indigenous Forum;
- Federal-Provincial-Territorial-Duty to Consult Working Group;
- Atlantic Aboriginal Consultation Community of Practice; and
- Canadian Association of Provincial and Territorial Archaeologists.
