Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada

Transformation

In August 2017, the Prime Minister announced the dissolution of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and a plan to create two new departments: Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada and Indigenous Services Canada. This transformation will take time and includes engagement with Indigenous peoples and others.
