The Council will be overseen by a 9 to 13-person Board of Directors which must include one person nominated by the Assembly of First Nations, one by Inuit Tapiirit Kanatami, one by the Métis National Council and one by the Native Women’s Association of Canada
The mandate of the Council would be to ensure that the Government of Canada is accountable for reconciliation and the implementation of the TRC Calls to Action. Some of the duties of the Council, as outlined by the bill, include:
Developing a multi-year national action plan on reconciliation
Monitoring and conducting research on the progress being made toward reconciliation, as well as federal policies and programs that affect Indigenous peoples
Recommending measures to promote reconciliation and educating the public about Indigenous realities
