Free Prior and Informed Consent ("FPIC") is an expression of Indigenous jurisdiction and law.
The obligation to consult and cooperate in good faith to obtain FPIC is the Crown's, but proponents realize they must comply for projects to succeed. FPIC, and consent in general, is a relational, ongoing process, not a one-time "yes" or "no." Nations and project proponents looking to implement consent-based decision-making models need to understand the mechanics of a negotiated FPIC agreement.
Join the experts and learn how to successfully negotiate FPIC/UNDRIP compliant agreements.
