Call for briefs: New public support program for Aboriginal development in Québec

From May 30 to September 5, 2016, parties concerned with Aboriginal economic, social and community development in Québec will be able to submit a brief in order to propose solutions and new ways of operating in the area of public support. This exercise will lead to the design of a new development support program for Aboriginal communities in Québec.

Accordingly, members of Aboriginal communities in Québec, Aboriginal enterprises and organizations, as well as all stakeholders in the area of Aboriginal development in Québec, are invited to submit a brief to the Secrétariat aux affaires autochtones. Through this document, they may:

  • suggest improvements to be made to the current program of the Secrétariat aux affaires autochtones, namely the Aboriginal Initiatives Fund II (IAF II);
  • explain the changes in the communities’ needs in terms of public support for economic, social and community development;
  • put forward new ideas concerning public support for Aboriginal development.

The briefs submitted will assist the SAA in designing a new program, insofar as the solutions and ideas proposed respect the governmental budgetary limitations, laws and regulations, intergovernmental responsibilities, the complementarity of government initiatives, the role of the Gouvernement du Québec in the area of economic, social and community development, the necessary coherency between the programs, policies, strategies and plans of action already implemented, fairness, and compliance with the rules of national accounting and the sound management of public finances.

The Secrétariat aux affaires autochtones invites any stakeholder in the area of Aboriginal economic, social and community development in Québec to consult the documents below (Guide to Drafting a Brief and Reference Document – IAF II)
