With the creation of the Indigenous Peoples’ Commission (APC) in 1990, the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC) became the first and only political party to formally recognize the unique place that Indigenous Peoples occupy in Canada, by providing us the opportunity to represent ourselves within a federal party.
The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission represents and promotes the interests of Indigenous members of the Liberal Party and encourages the active and equitable participation of Indigenous people at all levels of the Party structure.
Since its inception, the IPC has played an important role in the direction of the Liberal Party of Canada. Through the development of Indigenous policy, through general elections, and through the Indigenous caucus, the Commission has successfully represented the concerns of Indigenous Canadians at the Party level, thereby increasing Indigenous participation in the broader political system.
The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission executive works extremely hard to ensure that First Nation, Inuit and Metis voices are present and relevant at the policy making and government forums.
