Alberta is privileged to have one of the largest, youngest and fastest-growing Indigenous populations in Canada. About 250,000 people of First Nations, Métis and Inuit heritage play an important role in the social, cultural and economic fabric of the province.

Alberta’s First Nations Relations branch provides advice and specialized knowledge to provincial and federal departments, municipal governments and industry; and participates in cross-ministry strategies affecting Indigenous peoples such as education, health and children’s services.
