Indigenous Ministries supports the Indigenous Peoples of Canada spiritually, socially, economically and politically. We recognize that the purity of the land base provides for all our needs.

As active participants in the life of the church, we strive for reconciliation with the Anglican Communion and work towards Indigenous self-determination.
