Policy & Agreements

Aboriginal Policy Framework (APF)

Following extensive consultation with Aboriginal communities across Alberta and other interested parties “Strengthening Relationships, the Government of Alberta's Aboriginal Policy Framework” was approved by the Government of Alberta and released to the public in September 2000.

The Framework is the first of its kind in Canada, setting out the basic structure for Alberta government policies that address the needs of First Nations, Métis and other Aboriginal people in Alberta. It proposes a path to the future that emphasizes well-being, self-reliance, effective consultation regarding resource and economic development, partnerships and the clarification of roles and responsibilities.

The Government of Alberta is committed to working in partnership with Aboriginal governments, organizations and people to implement this Framework.
