In 2016, Canada agreed to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
This means dealing with the elephant in the room: FPIC (Free, Prior, and Informed Consent).
But what does FPIC mean? How can we expect our understanding of FPIC to change how we engage on natural resource projects in Canada?
This is a brown-bag lunch-and-learn, which is free for members and non-members. However, please RSVP by June 12 because space is limited.
