Building relationships with communities, government and industries

In the midst of a federal election, there is a need for a common forward strategy, to ensure consultation policy is effective for Indigenous community members, government representatives and leaders in the natural resources sector. While government departments strive to etch universal policies, there is a communal drive to collaborate and learn practical applications for consulting in a meaningful way.

Join us for The Canadian Institute’s 4th Annual Indigenous Consultation Atlantic Conference, to take a hard look at emerging government policies and to openly discuss best practices for consultation, in a non-partisan and neutral environment.
