We know that the environment is inextricably connected to everything that we do and that in order for any major project to obtain First Nations support and consent, it must firstly meet our standards of environmental stewardship.
At the FNMPC, we support these inherent responsibilities and work to develop Indigenous-led resources for our Members and First Nations across Canada to be able to support their needs in addressing their environmental stewardship concerns as they relate to major project development. We create tools for First Nations by First Nations to solve experienced problems that groups are facing when up against major projects. The Coalition is a resource that can assist First Nations with this work of being able to uphold their stewardship responsibilities while considering the economic benefits of major projects in their territories. Through our resource development, we strive to ensure that an Indigenous worldview is at the center of environmental assessments and consent-based decision-making.
