Liberals move forward with better housing and mental health services for Indigenous Peoples

August 31, 2021

The legacy of colonization, residential schools, and intergenerational trauma continues to impact the lives of many Indigenous peoples. Many of these communities still face obstacles when trying to access safe and culturally appropriate mental health services, and adequate housing.

A re-elected Liberal government will work to close the gaps in housing and mental health care for Indigenous communities with Indigenous-led solutions.

We’ll co-develop a new Indigenous Urban, Rural, and Northern Housing Strategy, and Canada’s first-ever National Indigenous Housing Centre, and continue to invest in a co-developed, distinctions-based mental health and wellness strategy with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation peoples.

Working together in partnership to create fairer and culturally appropriate services for Indigenous peoples is key to advancing our country’s efforts in reconciliation. We have a real plan, with real commitments, to work with Indigenous Peoples and communities to close gaps and move forward for everyone.
