Building on OUR Success

While many challenges still remain ahead of us in implementing Aboriginal title and rights, including treaty rights, we must recognize how far we have come and take advantage of the opportunities that now present themselves. Not just in some of our communities but in all our communities. We must 'Build on OUR Success'. This requires strong leadership, a lot of hard work and ensuring our citizens are behind us and driving the change from within each of our communities.

There are four key and interrelated areas that are critical to meeting our shared objective of improving the quality of life of our people and ensuring we have practicing and thriving cultures. These are:

  1. Strong and Appropriate Governance
  2. Fair Access to Lands & Resources
  3. Improved Education
  4. Individual Health
