About this Event

In November 2019, British Columbia became the first jurisdiction in Canada to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) into law. In December, the federal government committed to introducing legislation to implement UNDRIP in 2020.

What UNDRIP means to relationships between businesses and Indigenous peoples has been the subject of much discussion since it was adopted by the United Nations in 2007, in particular its principle of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC).

On February 28 at 1:00 p.m. (E.T.), Aboriginal law expert, Bryn Gray, Partner at McCarthy Tetrault, will provide an overview of what implementing UNDRIP in Canada means - and doesn’t mean - in a 30-minute presentation followed by time for questions and answers.
