Funding to the National Aboriginal Health Organization has been cut completely.

Funding to the Health Department of the Inuit Tapiriit of Kanata has been cut by 40%.

The First Nations Statistical Institute - established in part to track data relevant to First Nations and address the gaps in information that plague planning and policy making for Aboriginal Canadians - will be shut down.

100% of funding to the Health Department of the Native Women’s Association of Canada has been cut.
