"….Indigenous peoples are asserting their right of free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) in dealings with corporations and government regulatory processes and through the adoption of their own protocols. Investors and industry associations are also increasingly referring to FPIC in their own policies. While the federal government continues to deny the existence of this right, FPIC has been come an increasingly important factor in decisions about energy and resource development in Canada.

This one-day, interactive symposium is a unique opportunity for Indigenous leaders and activists- as well as partner organizations- to discuss the status of FPIC in Canadian and international law and its relevance in crucial decisions facing Indigenous peoples today. Learn more about FPIC, share your own experiences, and contribute to identifying practical recommendations to advance this important human rights standard.
