Federal Budget 2013: Aboriginal Investments Highlights

Parliament of Canada

The 2013 Federal Budget includes references to First Nations in almost every section of the document, with programs and spending linked to infrastructure, health, justice, policing and education.  However, many of these references are continuations or renewals of existing programs, often at the same or at a decreased funding rate.  The exceptions were a program focused on policing in First Nations communities set to receive an increase in funding for 2013 and the changes to the on-reserve Income Assistance Program with the creation of the First Nations Job Fund.
