Provinces and Territories

Provinces and territories work at the regional and community level with a broad array of Indigenous peoples, communities, governments and organizations.

Building on this joint commitment, the information that follows below provides the landscape of work underway in provinces and territories in responding to the Calls for Justice and addressing the root causes of violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people. It recognizes the significant work, engagement and collaboration underway within each jurisdiction – between government and Indigenous partners – and acknowledges that the journey is an ongoing one, with much more to be done. It also outlines where future collaborative action may be needed and welcomed.

Finally, this information the chapter highlights the breadth of responses and acknowledges and celebrates the unique realities and perspectives of Indigenous communities and persons from coast to coast to coast. Provinces and territories look forward to reviewing the priorities and strategies outlined in the National Action Plan, as developed by the working groups, and to building on the work underway in each jurisdiction.
