Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and federal ministers have signed formal agreements with three national Indigenous organizations (NIOs): the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), the Metis National Council (MNC) and the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK). Two other NIOs that have not received such agreements are the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples (CAP) and the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC). Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett’s office says the government is continuing to work with both organizations, but representatives from those organizations say the work is limited and slow, especially compared to the amount already achieved with the other three NOIs.
