Following the International Labour Organizations (ILO) adoption of the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples’ Convention and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the rights of indigenous peoples’ must begin to be implemented at the country-level to ensure they are effective. The main purpose of this Guide is to provide governments, indigenous and tribal peoples and workers’ and employers’ organizations with a practical tool for the implementation of indigenous peoples' rights.
The purpose of this project is to compile information on consultation frameworks that could be used by First Nations in Canada. It provides legal information in regards to Indigenous rights and governance.
This Kit focuses on development and indigenous peoples, with emphasis on their full and effective participation in all development processes and the need for a genuine partnership in—and ownership with them—of these processes.
This summary report highlights important notes from the UN meetings on indigenous rights. This particular meeting focuses on violence against indigenous women and girls with a focus on indigenous women with disabilities. It briefly references FPIC in relation to healthcare as well.
This update underlines three outstanding issues to date regarding Indigenous Peoples’ rights : the climate change negotiations related to the upcoming COP22, the increasing need for the voices of Indigenous persons with disabilities to be heard, and the increasing number of discussions concerning Business and Human Rights issues.
Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) is an Indigenous right that has been infringed upon by the Canadian legal system. A notable case is presented where the Supreme Court of Canada’s Sparrow decision laid out a case law in which Aboriginal title was overstepped. To honour obligations to Indigenous peoples, the Crown should adopt the standard of a minimal impairment of Aboriginal title.
