Mr. Speaker, the Government of the Northwest Territories is committed to strengthening relationships with governments. We are also committed to providing opportunities to create a more diverse, inclusive and representative public service.
Today, I am pleased to announce that the Department of Finance is launching Building Capacity with Indigenous Governments, a new program to support up to ten two-way secondment arrangements between the GNWT and Indigenous governments per year. Ce programme aidera les gouvernements autochtones à bonifier leur potentiel en matière de ressources humaines tout en donnant des occasions à leurs employés et au GTNO d’acquérir de l’expérience et de transmettre des connaissances. The program will support the secondment of employees between governments for immersive experiences about how our respective governments operate.
Mr. Speaker, this program was developed collaboratively. Representatives from the Department of Finance worked with officials from Indigenous governments over a series of engagement sessions to learn more about the unique needs of their organizations including human resources. Cette collaboration aidera à faire en sorte que le programme répond aux besoins des gouvernements autochtones et des résidents qu’ils servent. Plus important encore, l’ambition de ce programme est beaucoup plus qu’un transfert de savoir et de compétences entre différents organismes. Il s’agit d’une voie supplémentaire pour échanger nos expériences et apprendre des points de vue de chacun. At its full potential, the program will provide opportunities for more direct exchanges of ideas, deepen relationships, and build greater trust and understanding as partners.
Mr. Speaker, we look forward to building on our relationships with Indigenous governments and learning from their experiences as this program progresses. I would like to express my gratitude for the collaboration in developing this program and look forward to reporting on the success of this program as it advances.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
