AFN still trying to figure out what program cuts will mean for organization

APTN National News
The Assembly of First Nations is trying to figure out how deep programming cuts will affect the organization in the years to come.

According to an email obtained APTN National News, Aboriginal Affairs has rejected more than 6 million dollars in requests for program cash including money to examine education and missing and murdered Indigenous women.

Out of a total of 7.1 million dollars in total program money, just $880,000 was approved.

AFN interim national chief Ghislain Picard says it has been frustrating to deal with Canada on the issue.
