Aboriginal funding program renewed for another five years
Wednesday, March 24 2004
OTTAWA - The budget renews for another five years a $1.6-billion Aboriginal Human Resources Strategy which was set to expire.
Also, the new Urban Aboriginal Strategy, which funds various community projects in Canadians cities, has been extended and increased from $8 million to $14 million a year.
The budget also sets aside $20.5 million to work with Metis leaders on the implications of last fall's Supreme Court ruling on Metis hunting rights.
The budget points to several multi-year spending announcements for aboriginals in recent budgets in areas such as social housing and safe drinking water, but those programs do not receive any new money in this year's budget.
