Contributing Partners / Provinces and Territories

To ensure Indigenous families, survivors, women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people’s voices, perspectives, worldviews, and lived experiences are at the centre of the National Action Plan, over 100 Indigenous women, 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, and others contributed to the development of a National Action Plan.

Drawing upon the experience and expertise of family members and survivors, the National Action Plan is meant to be an overarching plan which identifies the necessary activities that must be taken by governments (federal, provincial/territorial, municipal, Indigenous), organizations, and communities across the country to address violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people. Rooted in the unique needs, experiences, and cultural contexts of Indigenous people and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, the National Action Plan is a series of interlinked, interrelated plans which represent the distinct and unique interests, priorities, and circumstances of Indigenous people. Within this past year, the National Family and Survivors Circle, the Contributing Partners, and provinces/territories have been developing their strategies/action plans which together make up the National Action Plan

Even though the National Action Plan has been co-developed, the distinct plans or strategies were developed by the National Family and Survivors Circle, individual Contributing Partners and the provinces/territories. The National Action Plan and the Contributing Partners plans are interconnected, but the National Action does not necessarily represent all aspects of each unique plan and/or strategy. Further, Core Working Group members may or may not concur with Contributing Partners’ plans or strategies in part or in whole.
