SYNOPSIS


This webinar is a part 4 of the CBABC Truth & Reconciliation Series.



Walking Together in Reconciliation
With the passage of UNDRIP at the Federal level and DRIPA in BC, both law and expectations around engaging with Indigenous communities has changed. This Public Sector* session will explore these changes in greater detail.

Participants can expect to leave with a wider perspective on understanding and reclaiming indigenous jurisdiction, how a new fiscal relationship could be developed between First Nations and Canada, and the role of First Nations as collectively an 11th province. Additionally, the session will include information on the need for improved educational outcomes and consider how to close the First Nations infrastructure gap.

*This session is suitable and designed to deliver value for attendants in the private sector, public sector, and other practitioners.
