City Creates Aboriginal Relations Division

City of WinnipegIn an effort to strengthen its relationship with aboriginal citizens, the City of Winnipeg has created an Aboriginal Relations Division.

The ARD will provide leadership and experience from an aboriginal perspective on programs, services, and initiatives that support and address the needs of Winnipeg’s aboriginal community.

The city has also created an Aboriginal Relations Leadership Team, in which a group of civic employees representing all departments regularly meets to develop and implement aboriginal initiatives across the city organization.

The ARD will also work with the Eagle Urban Transition Centre to be a point of contact for urban aboriginal citizens living in or moving to Winnipeg.
