Indigenous cultures are at the heart of the department's mandate and broadening our horizons on them not only allows us to better fulfill our role, but also to become more aware of the history of First Nations, Métis and Inuit. That is why we recognize the importance for employees to deepen, share their knowledge and discover on this matter through workshops and awareness activities throughout the year.
