I think part of the brief that the Métis National Council put forward does reflect upon those recommendations that the task force made in terms of governments working together. There needs to be better coordination. There hasn't been bilateral engagement between the Métis nation and the Government of Canada to date, at least not in a meaningful way.
I do want to point out that it's very clear that the provincial governments have a fair bit of jurisdiction when it comes to the regulations. If I may respond to one of the questions raised earlier in regard to access to mental health supports, I'd like to point out an example.
Fairly recently, all provincial governments, as you know, finalized federal-provincial agreements on health. There was considerable funding there for mental health, as well as home and community care. I believe that about $11 billion over 10 years was to be invested in these areas. An ongoing concern for the Métis nation is that when federal resources are transferred to provincial and territorial governments, it does not always mean that there actually will be any level of collaboration with or investment into Métis communities. We expect that this will probably be the case with mental health. As far as I'm aware, there isn't any funding being provided by the federal government directly to the Métis nation for mental health.
That's the case in many instances, so I want to make the point that the level of coordination between all three levels of government is extremely important. It's a broad recommendation, but I think it's one of the most important foundational ones from our perspective. That's why we reiterated the same recommendations that made sense to us and that the task force had advised.
