They discussed progress on a range of priority areas, including Land Claims Implementation, Reconciliation Measures and Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Health and Wellness, Homelessness, and Education, Early Learning, and Skills Development.


"It has been a pleasure welcoming a group of new Ministers to this partnership committee to help us move forward on our path to a stronger, self-determined Inuit Nunangat. The endorsement of our work plans today is an important step forward in these efforts."

Natan Obed, President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami

"I am honoured to have co-chaired my first ICPC meeting. A lot of progress has been made around this table in the years since it was formed, and I am committed to building on that progress to strengthen the Inuit-Crown partnership, advance Inuit self-determination, and create a more prosperous Inuit Nunangat. This is how we continue down the path of reconciliation. More to do."
