N.B. needs to improve Indigenous engagement: minister

New Brunswick needs to do a better job of engaging with Indigenous communities, according to one federal minister.

Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Marc Miller made the comments during a news conference on Tuesday.

Miller said he has heard directly from Indigenous communities about the expiration of tax-sharing agreements

“I don’t think it should be lost on anyone that we’re seeing a government that needs to be a little better engaged with Indigenous peoples,” Miller told reporters.

“These agreements are the nub of a lot of the discussions that we’ve had on revenue for communities that is making a difference in people’s lives that is in the tens of millions of dollars.”
