The relationship between Indigenous people and the government of Canada is terrible. the relationship with Indigenous people and commercial fishers is also terrible, especially over the past couple of years when the Mi'kmaq nation started up fishing in Nova Scotia.  There has definitely been a need to repair the relationships which will take time and a lot of effort.

Find out why this partnership has become successful.
