The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and IISAAK OLAM Foundation invite First Nations from the PACIFIC REGION to a discussion about protecting culturally significant species and places.

We are also hosting a session for the Central Region (Feb. 27th) and the Atlantic Region (March 6th). Registration info for this sessions can be found here:


Please join us if you are a First Nations harvester, Elders or knowledge keeper, Guardian, community steward, species technician or ecologist, youth, or any First Nations person with culturally significant species experience or interest!

Non-First Nations people may apply if they have been appointed by a First Nation to attend on their behalf.


This session is an opportunity to learn and share experiences about protecting species and places in an environmentally and culturally meaningful way, planning for abundance, and transforming existing Crown policies and processes around species management.

Anonymous feedback from the sessions will inform AFN's work to include First Nations perspectives and approaches in Canada's management of species at risk.

We are committed to creating a space for dialogue that builds community, develops a network of practitioners, and increases knowledge sharing amongst First Nations.
