The Public Policy Forum is offering a professional development opportunity exclusively for public service executives to explore in-depth how reconciliation with Indigenous peoples can be put into practice.
The sessions will be facilitated by a team of experienced moderators and involve presentations by leading experts including Indigenous leaders, discussion, critical thinking and interactive learning. The seminar series will focus on considering concrete policy solutions to some of the topical and important issues associated with the Indigenous agenda.
Session 4: Building a Nation-to-Nation, Government-to-Government and Inuit-Crown Relationship
This session will explore key concepts for the future of the relationship such as how self-government could work, what moving beyond the Indian Act could look like and innovative thinking in the governance and economic/fiscal space. It will also include an opportunity to engage with emerging Indigenous leaders and hear their perspectives for the future.
