The Aboriginal Ministry is made up of a national committee (Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee), three Urban Aboriginal Ministries, and a Justice and Reconciliation Mobilizer, each using their strengths to support healing and reconciliation between Aboriginal peoples and non-Aboriginal people in Canada.
The CRC’s Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee has put together resources for learning and action towards Indigenous justice and restoration. Here are links to some of our top resources:
Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee
The Canadian Aboriginal Ministry Committee (CAMC) has the specific role of educating and mobilizing CRC members and congregations to live in reconciled relationships as covenant (treaty) people with a focus on reconciling the relationship between Indigenous people and non-indigenous people in Canada.
Urban Aboriginal Ministry Centres
The three Urban Aboriginal Ministries situated in Winnipeg, Regina and Edmonton each strive to create a space where Aboriginal people can feel safe,valued and respected to use their gifts and to grow.

This is the final painting in an Indigenous retelling of the Easter story by Cree artist Ovide Bighetty entitled, "Kisemanito Pakitinasuwin - The Creator’s Sacrifice."
The images come from Gospel accounts of Jesus' death and resurrection, as well as visions that Indigenous elders had before the arrival of Europeans about the Easter story.
