CBC/Radio-Canada releases Indigenous strategy

CBC/Radio-Canada has released a national Indigenous strategy called, “Strengthening Relations, Walking Together.” According to the broadcaster, it is a three-year plan intended to help it “better understand its reflection and representation of First Nations, Inuit and Métis.” The strategy focuses on four areas: increasing the use of Indigenous languages in content development; increasing the number of Indigenous staff; developing more relations with Indigenous vendors and content providers; and conducting a historical review and analysis of its own operations. The company has also created an Indigenous Office. It will be headed by Robert Doane as senior director of national Indigenous strategy and will oversee the implentation of the strategy.

“I'm thrilled to see the launch of this first-ever National Indigenous Strategy,” said Doane. “It's the culmination of years of work and engagement with First Nations, Inuit and Métis from coast to coast to coast. And it's more than words on a page. It's a vibrant promise of ongoing, two-way engagement with Indigenous peoples. It's an invitation and an opportunity for everyone, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to join us on this journey.”
