Indigenous knowledge policy framework for proposed project reviews and regulatory decisions

The purpose of this discussion paper is to initiate a discussion and seek input from Indigenous peoples, stakeholders, provinces, territories and the public on principles, best practices and other elements that will inform the development of an Indigenous Knowledge Policy Framework for proposed project reviews and regulatory decisions. The policy framework will help guide the implementation of the Indigenous knowledge provisions in the new legislation under Bills C-68 and C-69.

The policy framework is being developed in partnership with Indigenous peoples, with further input being sought from Indigenous individuals, governments, communities and organizations through various meetings and workshops on Indigenous knowledge being organized across Canada.

Visit Environmental and Regulatory Reviews to learn more about the proposed Bills.



The discussion forum and submissions closed on June 28, 2019.
