First Nations, Métis, and Inuit

We’re building a Manitoba where no one is left behind.

Our government is investing in training and education to ensure all Manitobans, including Aboriginal and northern Manitobans, have the skills they need to succeed.

  • Manitoba is committed to building an all-season road network on the east side of Lake Winnipeg and the Freedom Road to Shoal Lake 40. We’re doing this through the East Side Road Authority, which partners with First Nations and nearby communities to make sure local people receive good jobs, training opportunities and economic benefits from its construction.

    • Brian Pallister believes the project is "wasteful spending" and would do away with the East Side Road Authority. (WFP, 08/30/15)

  • Our government recognizes how important education is to promoting reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous Manitobans. We are committing in law to a regularly-reviewed Aboriginal Education Framework to ensure that all Manitoba students learn about the history of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples.

  • We are helping people with diabetes by building renal dialysis units on reserve, at Garden Hill, Norway House, Berens River and Peguis. We are the only province to do this—putting families’ health care first.

We are working with First Nations and Métis families to make life better for all Manitobans.
