Practical Guidance for Developing Long-Term Partnerships

It has been another transformative year in Aboriginal consultation policy and practice. As the Government of Alberta’s Policy on Consultation with First Nations and Natural Resources Management, 2013 continues its roll-out, uncertainties remain surrounding roles and responsibilities under the new policy.

Yet, what has remained the same is an urgent need for stakeholders to engage in meaningful consultations. Looking to the future, the often conflicting views of industry, government and Aboriginal communities on project development must be managed collectively and with a view to consensus-building in order to be successful. Consultations, if managed successfully, hold the potential to establish such a balance.

Building off the success of previous editions, CI Energy Group’s Western Aboriginal Consultation & Negotiations Conference will bring together diverse perspectives from Aboriginal communities, industry and government to discuss critical updates in policy as well as innovative ways to enhance your consultation practices. .

  • What progress has been made in Alberta’s new consultation policy and how will it impact consultations as it advances?

  • What are industry leaders doing to engage in meaningful consultations and how can their learnings be applied to your practices?

  • How can you ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page early and collaborating to manage the consultation process?

  • What are the key ingredients for successful Aboriginal-Industry business partnerships?

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear directly from the Alberta Ministry of Aboriginal Relations about the latest developments in consultation policy.
