All federal organizations have a responsibility to design and deliver policies and programs that comply with the rights and provisions of modern treaties and self-government agreements with Indigenous Peoples. This course for policy and program officers provides detailed information about how the federal government works with Indigenous Peoples to implement modern treaty and self-government agreements. Participants will learn how to conduct an Assessment of Modern Treaty Implications and apply a modern treaty and self-government lens to the development of policies, programs and services.

  • understanding the historical, legal and policy context of modern treaties and self-government agreements
  • reviewing the content and structure of agreements
  • clarifying the roles and responsibilities of federal officials
  • reviewing the implementation process and its challenges
  • building strong relationships and resolving disputes
