Canada’s Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF)

In early 1998, the government of Canada committed CAD350 million to healing initiatives for Aboriginal communities. The aim was to support and initiate healing for those who were directly or indirectly harmed by their communities' experiences within the Canadian system of "Indian Residential Schools".

„Canada’s Aboriginal Healing Foundation“, a CPI case study, provides information on historical background, project design, implementation and societal impacts of the Canadian AHF and serves as an instructive example of policy design to policy makers and interested members of the public.
