The IISAAK OLAM Foundation and the Assembly of First Nations’ (AFN) Environment sector is hosting a regional dialogue on species at risk protection, conservation, management, and recovery.

You can find information about the upcoming dialogue here.

A session for the central region takes place on March 8, 2022. Registration is now open.

Harvesters, Elders and Knowledge Keepers, Guardians, community stewards, species at risk technicians or ecologists, youth, and any First Nations persons with species at risk experience or interest to join are welcome. This upcoming session is based on positive feedback and the strong desire for continued conversations building on the success of two sessions held last year.

The goal at this year’s session is to create opportunities for knowledge exchange, relationship and capacity building, and a diversity of First Nations voices that can help to identify First Nations’ priorities as they relate to species at risk protection, conservation, management, and recovery. Participants will also help to inform the development of recommendations for the implementation of the Pan-Canadian Approach by Crown governments in ways that appropriately recognize and respect the approaches of First Nations as Rights-Holders.

This dialogue session is meant to create a space that supports dialogue specifically among First Nations persons.
