  • Making long-term funding investments to improve housing for Indigenous peoples, including addressing homelessness and housing affordability
  • Developing the Indigenous languages strategy with the help of Indigenous communities and groups
  • Establishing a university in Northern Canada in partnership with Indigenous organizations and local governments
  • Making sure that mental health services in Indigenous communities are culturally appropriate and able to provide adequate support for youth
  • Undertaking a complete overhaul of Child and Family Services for Indigenous communities to ensure that more children remain out of foster care and are able to gain a “secure personal cultural identity”
