Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC)
In general, INAC has primary, but not exclusive, responsibility for meeting the federal government's constitutional, treaty, political and legal responsibilities to First Nations, Inuit and Northerners. To fulfill this mandate, INAC must work collaboratively with First Nations, Inuit and Northerners, as well as with other federal departments and agencies, provinces and territories. Increasingly, INAC's role has become one of facilitating change and bringing together the partners and interests needed to implement Gathering Strength — Canada's Aboriginal Action Plan.
