Two years after the Public Inquiry Commission on Relations between Indigenous Peoples and Certain Public Services in Québec (the Viens Commission) tabled its report, the Québec government has taken steps to significantly change its procedures that are having an immediate, concrete impact on the quality of services that it offers the Indigenous peoples.
The Minister Responsible for Indigenous Affairs has implemented the J'ai espoir plan that ultimately calls for $200 million in investments, of which $125 million has already been committed. The measures implemented are having a genuine impact on the quality of life of the members of Indigenous communities. Above all, they prioritize the enhancement and perpetuation of funding, the enhancement of the quality of services, and cultural safety.
