*''Granting an extension to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that is examining the history of the residential school policy that dates back more than one century.

*''Slowing a “rush forward” with planned legislation this fall to reform the Aboriginal education system. He says there is “profound distrust” among First Nations over the proposed First Nation Education Act. It will set standards for teaching staff, curriculum and students. Aboriginal leaders are concerned the act will impose standards that disregard Indigenous language and culture and that education funding will not be increased. They want immediate increases to education funding, but Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt says there will be no funding increases considered until the new act is passed.''
+
*''Establishing a public inquiry into the cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women, whose numbers are estimated at more than 600. The federal government has flatly rejected this, and is ignoring calls from international organizations and provincial governments on the matter.''
+
*''Treating the housing situation on First Nations reserves and Inuit communities “with the urgency it deserves”. He says housing conditions are unacceptable and it is “abundantly clear” that funding for aboriginal housing is “woefully inadequate.”''
+
 
*''Adopting a much less “adversarial” approach to dealing with aboriginal land claims and treaty disputes.''
