Impacts and Implications of BC Passing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Late 2019, the BC Legislature passed a bill implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). This legislation creates a framework for reconciliation in B.C and requires that Indigenous peoples are included in all decision making that impacts their rights, among other things.
In light of this, and given the recent blockades and protests across Canada, how will UNDRIP impact our economy, decision-making in the province, and your business? How will major infrastructure investments and private-sector projects be affected?
The Burnaby Board of Trade is happy to share a special webinar held in partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce: “UNDRIP in Canada | Truths, Myths & What Its Implementation In Canada Means”. You can view the recording of this webinar online here or by watching below.
