Declaration Act Action Plan

The Declaration Act Action Plan, released in March 2022, is the first of its kind. Built in consultation and co-operation with Indigenous Peoples, the plan articulates the specific actions every ministry in government will take over five years to create a better B.C. for everyone.

The first of its kind, the Declaration Act Action Plan includes 89 tangible, achievable actions in the areas of self-determination and self-government, rights and title, ending anti-Indigenous racism, and enhancing social, cultural and economic well-being.

Every ministry in government is working in consultation and co-operation with Indigenous Peoples to deliver on their specific actions in tangible and measurable ways.

The Action Plan was developed through two years of intensive engagement to ensure it aligned with the priorities of Indigenous Peoples in B.C. It includes goals, outcomes, and tangible actions needed for meaningful progress in reconciliation.
