This fully online micro-credential is designed for individuals who work directly with Indigenous Peoples, including those who are responsible for Indigenous community engagement, consultation, or the implementation of third-party forest certification.
It presents an introduction to Aboriginal, treaty and title rights, as enshrined in Canada’s Constitution Act, and an overview of legal and regulatory requirements flowing from the Duty to Consult and Accommodate.
Emphasis is placed on action-oriented information and strategies for forest sector professionals.
You should only choose this standalone micro-credential if you already possess moderate background knowledge about First Nation, Métis and Inuit Peoples. Otherwise, we recommend that you enroll in the more robust 5-hour Respecting Aboriginal and Treaty Rights in Sustainable Forest Management course, which is the first in a series of self-directed online courses developed on Indigenous Rights and Relationship-Building designed for forestry practitioners and youth who are exploring careers in the forestry, parks and conservation sectors.
This micro-credential was developed by Sault College in collaboration with Project Learning Tree Canada (an initiative of SFI).
Learners will earn a Digital Badge and Certificate of Course Completion after successful completion of this course.
