Aboriginal Civic Participation

Natural disasters are opportunties. 

Canada needs to develop a country wide network of volunteer workers.  It’s a simple concept.  CNCS and its programs, like Americorps, have become part of civic life.  This model can be used in Canada to create inclusion in government service.

The program should incude minimum wage and standard labour guarantees.  Workers also need preference in hiring for government work.

AFN should have done this long ago, but remains exclusive.
