Welcome to the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry – Child Welfare Initiative (AJI-CWI) Web Site.

The AJI-CWI represented a joint initiative among four parties:

  • The Province of Manitoba;
  • The Manitoba Metis Federation;
  • The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs; and
  • The Manitoba Keewatinook Ininew Okimowin.

The purpose of the joint initiative was to work together through a common process to develop and subsequently oversee the implementation of a plan to restructure the child welfare system in Manitoba. An essential feature of this restructuring was the expansion of off-reserve authority for First Nations and the establishment of a province-wide Metis mandate.

The pages on this site contain archival information on AJI-CWI.

In the spirit of partnership, this site was jointly managed by the four parties to the AJI=CWI/.
