Our country has embarked on a process of healing from a history of residential schools and a destructive policy of assimilation. It is a healing process intended for both indigenous and non-indigenous Canadians.
A Yukon Liberal Government will:
- work with First Nation governments to address the legacy of residential schools by closing the gaps in service delivery and creating a culturally relevant and responsive justice and corrections system;
- work with Yukon First Nations to identify how the Yukon Government can implement its responsibilities stemming from the Calls to Action of the Commission, and
- implement training programs for Yukon Government employees on the legacy and impact of residential schools.
