Canadian Institute has announced the launch of the Indigenous Consultation & Engagement Atlantic conference, that will take place on October 8 – 9, 2024 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This premier event will bring together consultation and engagement professionals, Indigenous leaders, industry experts, environmental specialists, and government officials for a comprehensive dialogue on the most pressing consultation challenges facing Canada’s east coast.

The two-day robust program features insights from the Assembly of First Nations National Chief Cindy Woodhouse Nepinak, indigenous perspectives and best practices from Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs Secretariat, Chippawas First Nation, and Haiłzaqv Nation, policy updates and legal perspectives from Burchell Wickwire Bryson LLP and Barnaby & Associates, as well as sessions on cumulative effects and energy future.

Key highlights of the conference include:

  • INDIGENOUS LEADERS ROUNDTABLE: Priorities, Best Practices, and Key Challenges Across Atlantic Canada
  • CUMULATIVE EFFECTS: Proactive Protection of Collective Rights
  • 2024 LEGAL FRONTIERS: Mastering UNDRIP Implementation, Title Transformations, and Beyond
  • INTERACTIVE STRATEGY SESSIONS: Harnessing Indigenous Wisdom to Address Current Consultation Challenges and Forge Solutions
  • BUILDING RESILIENCE: Enhancing Community Safety Through Strategic Disaster Risk Reduction

Through in-depth discussions, case studies, smaller-group sessions, and networking, the delegates will gain valuable knowledge and practical strategies to enhance their consultation and engagement efforts with Indigenous communities and get a chance to forge relationships in a neutral, non-partisan setting, ensuring that all voices are heard and respected.

“Halifax is the place to be with its dynamic and intriguing mix of heritage and culture. Indeed, the Mi’kmaq people have called this land home for more than 13,000 years. A marquee destination embracing a diversity of people, communities, shops, restaurants and nightlife, our city will present you with a truly original experience,” – said Halifax Mayor Mike Savage in his message to the delegates. “I want to acknowledge, with gratitude, the Canadian Institute Indigenous Affairs Team and sponsors for hosting this important and timely event here in Halifax.”

With increased demand for urgent solutions to economic and infrastructure challenges, governments and indigenous groups face the tough task of managing competing priorities and balancing cumulative effects. Meanwhile, industries strive to accelerate their pace to meet rising demands, navigating the intricate dance of decision-making and coordination that requires significant time and effort.

To help accomplish these goals, Canadian Institute’s Conference on Indigenous Consultation & Engagement Atlantic will bring together esteemed consultation professionals from across the region to explore critical lessons learned and collaboratively develop innovative strategies to advance Indigenous consultation in the region.
