" This report analyzes the substantial changes to Indigenous policy and legislation in Canada, which are coalescing around the current Liberal Government's proposed Indigenous Rights, Reconciliation and Implementation Framework legislation"
This article addresses Canada’s shifting yet fledgling progress towards the harmonisation of Canadian domestic law and the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The pathway to reconciliation and sustainable development for Canada is discussed as rights-based resource governance in contrast to Canada’s current imposition of extractive imperialism in both Canada and Latin America.
This handbook is intended to assist Indigenous community members and Canadian stakeholders to understand the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and how it can be implemented. An overview of the rights included in UNDRIP and their significance for Indigenous communities is included in the handbook, including a section about FPIC.
This report emerged out of a workshop held by Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) which brought together representatives from extractive industries to discuss the application of FPIC in engagement with Indigenous peoples. The report provides a corporate interpretation of the rights promised under FPIC including its legal requirements, benefits to corporate social responsibility, and potential impediments to business profits.
In this article, the author suggests that understandings of self-determination among Indigenous communities in Canada would benefit from an understanding of the self as being autonomous. The author argues that the models of collective self-determination among Aboriginal communities, are too abstract for political arguments and encourages an individual model of self-determination for Indigenous peoples that would be easier to implement.
This article explores the development of the principle of FPIC and the challenges that it presents to conventional forms of governance. FPIC is examined as a form of negotiated justice that aims to produce regulatory decisions through horizontal and decentralized forms of engagement.
