As of May 2016, Canada became a full supporter, without qualification, of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). 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 UNDRIP in Canada, including the application of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC)?
