Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC)

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) has primary, but not exclusive, responsibility for meeting the federal government’s constitutional, treaty, political and legal responsibilities to First Nations, Inuit and Northerners. It is responsible for delivering provincial-like services such as education, housing, and community infrastructure to Status Indians on-reserves, and for delivering social assistance and social support services to residents on reserves with the goal of ensuring access to services comparable to those available to other Canadian residents.
