webinar - Indigenous Corporate training

Thursday, June18, 2020
9 AM - 10 AM Pacific Time

Meaningful consultation with First Nations communities on whose traditional territory herbicide applications are proposed is a significant step in the development and confirmation of Pest Management Plans in BC. Bob will review the history of consultation in the province with an emphasis on vegetation management. He will clear up some of the confusion over consultation, engagement and notification, and explain the requirements under the law. Bob will draw from his extensive experience working with companies in BC to discuss some case studies. Finally, he will provide practical hints and tips for engaging or working with First Nations communities.
This webinar will primarily benefit vegetation managers who are developing pest management plans. However, it will also be useful for application crews who are working in First Nations traditional territory, and for companies who wish to hire First Nations workers. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and participants will earn one CEC point for attending.
