Learning about international and national standards helps communities to defend their lands.
This paper addresses two case studies, a mining policy identified in the Cree Nation of James Bay and a community-driven impact assessment process identified by the Squamish Nation. The paper aims to articulate Indigenous-driven mechanisms and how these can transform how FPIC is implemented in practice.
This paper critiques current Canadian consultation processes and proposes changes to improve their effectiveness with respect to Indigenous values and legal orders, in order to strengthen the relationship between Indigenous peoples and Canadian governments.
These short website and booklet are designed to be a first approach of what FPIC is. It was developed by the IRRG group, with input from Indigenous Peoples in Canada, and the support of two international designers. The website can be visited on mobile devices and the booklet can be freely printed and distributed.
