Public symposium, online and in person
9-5 pm, Wednesday, May 20th, University of Ottawa
Supreme Court decisions and international human rights standards including the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples recognize the right of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to make their own decisions about resource development on their lands and other important issues. This symposium is an opportunity to discuss the importance of free, prior and informed consent, its status in Canadian and international law and its relevance in crucial decisions facing Indigenous peoples today.
Join in person or online to learn more about FPIC, share your own experiences, and help identify practical recommendations going forward. For more information, and the forum agenda, please visit their website.
