This page is an overview of the Ontario cabinet, with an emphasis on how their portfolio impacts First Nations. Below you will find each cabinet member, the ministry or portfolio for which they are responsible, their broad mandate, and key highlights from their mandate letters which impact First Nations.
The current Ontario government is working towards a collective response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which is why the following paragraph is included in every mandate letter:
As you know, taking action on the recommendations contained in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report is a priority for our government. That is why we released The Journey Together, a document that serves as a blueprint for making our government’s commitment to reconciliation with Indigenous peoples a reality. As we move forward with the implementation of the report, I ask you and your fellow Cabinet members to work together, in co-operation with our Indigenous partners, to help achieve real and measurable change for Indigenous communities.
