During this time where we are coming together by staying apart to fight COVID-19, the ERGP (Extractive Resource Governance Program) is staying connected with our partners by offering a series of short weekly webinars, starting Thursday, April 23rd and running for six weeks from 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. MDT.

The overarching theme of the webinar series is “Tools/Mechanisms For Engaging Indigenous Peoples in Resource Development”, and will include a series of topics as described below:

·         Week #1: Introduction to Lecture Series: History of Co-Management in Canada

·         Week #2: Case Study: Engagement of Indigenous Peoples in the Extractive Sector in Canada’s Northwest Territories

·         Week #3: Resource Revenue Sharing

·         Week #4: Engaging Indigenous Peoples in Environmental Impact Assessment

·         Week #5: Engaging Indigenous Peoples in Monitoring of Extractive Operations

·         Week #6: Ensuring Economic Benefits (Local Content) for Indigenous Peoples

Note: Each lecture will be between 30 and 60 minutes dependent on the topic, and will include allocated time for Q/A.

These webinars are free of charge and will bring together decision-makers from both government and industry from all over the world. You can choose which weekly lecture you would like to participate in throughout the 6 weeks, dependent on your interests. We do, however, recommend that you participate in the series in its entirety as the topics will be built upon each other throughout the weeks.  Once you have registered, your confirmation email will provide individual calendar invites for each session so you are able to add only those sessions you plan to attend.

The webinar will be delivered by our own Deborah Archibald, Director of the Extractive Resource Governance program.

There is no cost to register. The webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues that may be interested.
