Free, Prior and Informed Consent

UNDRIP and FPIC

We provide advice on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and specifically, the principle of Free, Prior, and Informed Consent. We can advise you about how best to use UNDRIP and FPIC to advance your sovereignty and your rights. 

Our lawyers have written and spoken widely about FPIC. We have a thorough understanding of FPIC, its development, and how to make it work for you. In the recent Hamlet of Clyde River case OKT lawyers assisted the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation in an intervention before the Supreme Court of Canada to argue for the application of the UNDRIP as part of the duty to consult and accommodate Indigenous Peoples.
