The Intergovernmental and Indigenous Affairs Secretariat has been established by merging the Intergovernmental Affairs Secretariat with the former Aboriginal Affairs functions of the Labrador and Aboriginal Affairs Office. The move unifies the Provincial Government’s efforts to build intergovernmental relations with efforts to advance relationships with Indigenous Governments and Organizations.

A separate Office of Labrador Affairs has been created to help address unique issues and advance social and economic development in the region.

The responsibilities associated with both of these offices remain with the Premier.

February 22, 2017 - Government Structure Realigned

Labrador and Aboriginal Affairs Office (LAAO) has two branches, Labrador Affairs and Aboriginal Affairs. Labrador Affairs focuses on the economic and social development of Labrador by ensuring the unique perspectives of Labrador are considered in the formulation of Government policy and in the delivery of provincial programs and services in Labrador. Aboriginal Affairs focuses on a principle-based relationship with Aboriginal people, characterized by mutual respect, which is the foundation for sound Government policies and programs, vibrant and prosperous Aboriginal communities, and proud Aboriginal people.
