AFN, ITK have big expectations for Federal #Budget2017

Finance Minister Bill Morneau told the House of Commons Tuesday that he will deliver the federal budget March 22.

Last year, Morneau and the Liberals put up $8.4 billion over five years towards mostly First Nation on reserve programs.

According to the AFN, that much should be expected this year.

And the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami say last year’s budget was just a start.
