Chiefs of Alberta's First Nations voted unanimously to support Bill C-69. The First Nations support the legislation because it provides Indigenous communities with a greater say about development. The bill updates federal environmental review legislation by streamlining a patchwork of regulatory bodies, offering broader impact assessments that consider health and socio-economic factors, and prioritizing early engagement with Indigenous people.
