Working with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
On June 21, 2021, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act received Royal Assent and immediately came into force. But, what does that mean and how does it affect how you consult and accommodate Indigenous Peoples? What are the legal and policy issues around adopting and implementing the Declaration in Canada, including the application of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC)?
What are your key challenges?
- How to consult with Indigenous communities?
- How to apply UNDec to your work?
- Understanding free, prior and informed consent (FPIC)?
- Understanding the Canadian Government’s implementation of UNDec?
- Understanding the legal effects of UNDec?
Who should take this course?
- Everyone who needs to fulfill legal and regulatory requirements for consultation
- Federal, provincial, regional, and municipal government staff
- Indigenous Peoples
- Senior executives, managers and board members
- Academia, lawyers, and everyone interested in UNDec
The session on UNDec really helped demystify the Declaration and led to important discussions around how our day-to-day work can influence, and be influenced by the implementation of UNDec. A very good session to provide information and provoke thought.
