Description This report supports FPIC in Canada and promotes understanding of, and progress towards, its successful negotiation. In Canada, FPIC is unique because the rights of Aboriginal peoples are protected under the Canadian Constitution. This ensures rights confirmed through treaties are protected, however, it does not provide clear guidance on consent.
