On the journey to self-government, “Shortcuts” can be useful.  Welcome to our new series of high-level briefings on key governance issues, designed for First Nations councils and administrators or anyone who needs a quick introduction to topics like consultation and accommodation, or “FPIC”.  The briefings are short, easy to read, and packed with lots of references for those who want to explore the topic more on their own.  Let us know what you think, and feel free to suggest other First Nations governance topics you’d like to see in this series by dropping us a note at rfng@carleton.ca.
