Liberals say they are investing into indigenous communities
The Liberal government announced a historic $8.4 billion in funding over five years to help indigenous communities.
The numbers include $2 billion on water and wastewater systems in First Nations and $2.6 billion over five years for primary and secondary education on reserves.
The budget proposes $141.7 million be spent over five years for the monitoring and testing of reserve drinking water and $1.8 billion over the same time period for facility operation and maintenance.
The budget also contains additional commitments, such as $40 million over two years for the inquiry on missing and murdered indigenous women.
