Ms. RoseAnne Archibald,

National Chief of the Assembly of the First Nations,

55 Metcalfe Street,

Suite 1600,

Ottawa, ON K1P 6L5

Dear National Chief Ms. RoseAnne Archibald,

Congratulations on being elected the first Woman National Chief of the Assembly of the First Nations at the 42nd Annual General Assembly.

At a critical moment for Canada’s relationship with Indigenous people, we are glad that someone of your stature with years of varied experience, including being outgoing regional chief of Ontario, will lead the AFN. We stand in solidarity with your pledge to work with the governments to implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call to action.  Our Indigenous people have endured injustices for many years and they continue to face these challenges today. We stand in solidarity with them and look forward to strengthening our relationship, while supporting their efforts as they rightfully seek justice.

The Canadian Multicultural Council – Asians in Ontario, is an umbrella organization representing 20 – Canadian associations of various Asian countries, ethnic regions, and cultures. We are a Toronto based non-profit, non-political umbrella organization. Our objective is to be a leader in promoting Asian heritage and culture within the mosaic of the Canadian multicultural society. We aim to build a vibrant multicultural society and to promote racial harmony through the understanding of cultures and heritages.

Once again congratulations on your appointment, and we look forward to working with you and all indigenous nations to build a better Canada.

Sincerely yours,

Raj Thavaratnasingham

President – CMC
