Ensuring Indigenous Consultation Takes Priority
The Canadian Institute’s 12th Annual Eastern Indigenous Consultation & Engagement Conference is back, taking place at the Pantages Hotel in Toronto, from May 14 to 16, 2019. During an election year for the federal government, and during the first year of office for the newly elected Ontario government, it is important to prioritize Indigenous consultation, to solidify its importance and ensure communities, industries and governments are achieving mutually beneficial goals.
This year’s program delivers discussions on the most crucial topics affecting consultation in Ontario and across Canada, from the debate over industry projects to implementation of the United Nations Declaration.
Join us for a diverse look at these pressing topics:
- Panel: Trans Mountain Pipeline Report and Top Legal Cases to Watch
- Impacts of the Proposed Impact Assessment Act
- Canada’s Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework
- Panel: UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
- Chiefs’ Panel: Priorities for First Nations in Consultation and Engagement
This three-day conference is an excellent opportunity for you to meet with Indigenous leaders, as well as fellow attendees from all over Canada, share views, and create an opportunity for networking, collaboration, sharing of technical information and the building of trust relationships.
