Distinctions-Based Infrastructure

Our government has made significant investments in Indigenous communities to help build houses, schools, recreational centres, clinics, roads, and other essential infrastructure.

Even with these investments, Indigenous communities continue to experience real and pressing infrastructure needs, which contribute to ongoing levels of unacceptable poverty, and make it difficult for communities to prosper. This cannot continue.

To address this infrastructure deficit, we will co-develop and invest in distinctions-based community infrastructure plans, and will move forward with addressing critical infrastructure needs – such as housing, all-weather roads, high-speed internet, health facilities, treatment centres, and schools – in First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities by 2030. We will also move forward with new investments to support the ongoing operation and maintenance of this infrastructure.
