The Government of Alberta's policy on consultation with Metis settlements on land and natural resource management, 2015

Description

In Fall 2015, The Government of Alberta’s Policy on Consultation with Metis Settlements on Land and Natural Resource Management, 2015 was approved by Cabinet. The Policy was developed in consultation with the Metis Settlements General Council and a working group of Settlement leaders to ensure their interests and issues were well understood. Industry also played a key role in the development of the Policy. It is modeled closely after the current First Nations consultation policy, and establishes, for the first time, a formal consultation process between Alberta, project proponents and the Metis Settlements. The Policy came into force and was publicly released on April 4, 2016 with the release of The Government of Alberta’s Guidelines on Consultation with Metis Settlements on Land and Natural Resource Management, 2016 (Guidelines). Implementation of the Policy is consistent with Alberta’s approach to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
