The control and maintenance of land, water, and other natural resources are of the highest importance to First Nations and the Government. In these contexts, nation to nation consultation and cooperation is necessary in order to balance protection of the environment with the furtherance of proposed developments. Ongoing legislative and regulatory reforms in this area are changing the way Government engages in consultations
and project proponents and First Nations navigate various government agencies. These changes require First Nation administrators, developers, and legal counsel to stay up to date on environmental legal frameworks in Canada.

This program will bring together experts in the fields of Aboriginal and environmental law to address some of the most pressing issues facing Aboriginal communities, governments, and industry. Attendees will learn about the latest legal developments while also gaining a practical perspective from leaders who have faced and overcome challenges.
