Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development.
Campaign 2000's 2018 report card, released this week, shows that Nunavut's child poverty rate remains the highest in Canada: 34.8% for children under 18, and a staggering 42.5% for children under the age six. It cites systemic underfunding of programs and services for indigenous children as an underlying cause of this extreme poverty.
Will the minister work with the Government of Nunavut and provide funding based on actual needs, as the government has for first nations children?
