AFN NATIONAL CHIEF ROSEANNE ARCHIBALD LOOKS FORWARD TO BUILDING THE HEALING PATH FORWARD WITH RE-ELECTED PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU

on September 21, 2021

(Ottawa, ON) – Assembly of First Nations National Chief RoseAnne Archibald congratulates newly re-elected Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada on achieving a minority government in the 44th federal election.

“I offer congratulations to Prime Minister Trudeau and the Liberal Party on their re-election,” said National Chief RoseAnne Archibald. “I look forward to continuing to work with the Liberal government and all parties to address First Nations priorities as set out in the Healing Path Forward platform, while continuing to make transformative change for our children, communities and Nations.”

The Healing Path Forward: 2021 Federal Priorities for Strengthening and Rebuilding First Nations platform outlines the priority areas for strengthening, rebuilding and healing First Nations. The document identifies a series of commitments federal parties must make to First Nations to strengthen relationships and build a stronger Canada.

“I recognize every First Nation citizen who chose whether to vote in this election or not and offer my sincerest congratulations to all of the Indigenous candidates – you’ve made us all proud,” said National Chief Archibald. “There is a healing path forward and we can get there by working together. I committed to working with all parties after the election to ensure that Canada guarantees equality and equity as we heal, as we rebuild and strengthen First Nations.”
