CONSULTATION AND ENGAGEMENT

 

Consultation and engagement with Aboriginal groups in Canada is part of the formal decision-making process. Our governments and private corporations have a legal duty to consult Aboriginal groups before engaging in any natural resource development, policy development, or legislative processes that may impact those groups.

 

Increasingly, museums and heritage institutions that do not have a legal responsibility to consult are recognizing the changing nature of interpreting and presenting Aboriginal history within their walls. For them, engagement with Aboriginal communities has become a priority for new exhibits.

 

Know History has extensive experience providing consultation and engagement services to historical and heritage organizations. Our associates have worked in Ontario, Nunavut and Alberta with Aboriginal groups, museums, governments, and project proponents to develop, implement and report on consultation. Our strategies are customized for each client to ensure that we have representative community engagement, that communities receive up to date and accurate information about the project, and that community members have multiple opportunities to participate in the process.

 

Consultation and Engagement services provided:

  • Consultation and Engagement strategy design
  • Facilitation
  • Focus groups
  • Report writing (summaries and analytical breakdowns)
  • Surveys (paper and digital)
  • Workshops and training
