Duty to Consult Guidelines

October 10, 2017 at 2:54 PM

The Ministry of Indigenous Relations & Reconciliation (MIRR) has announced revised Draft Guidelines for ministries on the Duty to Consult. The 10-day comment period is inadequate to provide a meaningful set of comments, but we have advised the Ministry that we will look at these over the next few weeks and provide detailed feedback “through other forums” per their letter of October 2nd, once we have had a chance to confer with members.  OSSGA will set up a working group composed of interested members of the Land Use and Environment Committees to study this further, but any member is welcome to participate.
