Indigenous Women and Impact Assessment Final Report

The Impact Assessment Act came into force on 29 August 2019, bringing in sweeping changes to the federal legislative framework for impact assessments. This report outlines the various issues and concerns of Indigenous women as they relate to impact assessments. The goal of this report is to provide proponents, governments and impact assessment practitioners generally with information that will help ensure Indigenous women are meaningfully and respectfully engaged in impact assessments and that their rights, concerns, interests and knowledge are properly taken into consideration and respected.
