The Indigenous Peoples’ Commission (IPC) of the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jade Ernest to the position of IPC Vice-Chair, Operations.

Jade has roots in the Buffalo River Dene and Waterhen Lake Cree Nations.  She brings to IPC experience with a passion for working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples both within the government and within Indigenous communities.  Jade’s commitment and initiative, along with her organisational and collaborative teamwork skills place her in an excellent position to maintain and improve IPC operations.  She will undoubtedly play a major role in IPC successfully moving forward with our collective goals, objectives, and activities.

 “The IPC is happy to welcome Jade Ernest to our team. Jade is first and foremost a scientist and that is very exciting; she represents a group of Indigenous professionals who will be critical as we move forward with the new Nation-to-Nation relationship between Indigenous people and the government of Canada. We need Indigenous scientists and it’s exciting to bring her experience and skills towards making our work even more successful.” ~ IPC Co-Chairs, Suzy Kies and Chad Cowie

The IPC 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.
