Description This article describes how Indigenous peoples’ right to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) is an important tool in the work of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), a national representative organization for Inuit peoples in Canada. FPIC is viewed as an important tool that ensures Inuit participation in decision-making with government, as demonstrated in a comparison of two projects in which FPIC was and was not used appropriately.
