Together with Indigenous peoples, we are taking concrete action to support healthy communities and build a better future for everyone in B.C.
As part of Budget 2019, B.C. First Nations will now have a stable, long-term source of funding to invest in self-government, cultural revitalization and services that make life better for families.
This commitment means approximately $3 billion in shared provincial revenue over the next 25 years to support First Nations communities, including an estimated $300 million over the next three years.
This historic commitment to advance reconciliation builds on the other work we are already doing:
B.C. will be the first province in Canada to introduce legislation mandating government to bring provincial laws and policies into harmony with the UN Declaration. This legislation is being co-developed with the First Nations Leadership Council and with the input of other Indigenous communities.
