DEVE-1061Indigenous and Canadian Government Relationships - Section 35

This micro-credential focuses on Section 35 of the Constitution Act and the Duty to Consult. Using an Indigenous lens, participants will learn about the relevant laws, principles, policies, and obligations to work towards reconciliation such as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action. They will complete a jurisdictional scan involving federal and provincial acts and the Natural Resource Transfer Act (NRTA). Participants will learn about community and land-based research approaches, Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), and principles of ownership, control, access, and possession (OCAP). They will identify obligations related to data, intellectual property rights, and legal obligations related to agreements and contracts. Participants will analyze a case study that has established precedence of consultation determinants of Section 35.
