The purpose of this Policy is to provide a framework for meaningful consultation and accommodation of PIB interests by the Crown and Third Parties in relation to the use of land and/or resources in, or Activities impacting, PIB’s Area of Responsibility. PIB developed this Policy in order to ensure the protection of Aboriginal Rights and Title in PIB’s Area of Responsibility so that we are sustained as a People for generations to come. The Policy reflects our mandate to protect and manage the land which we inherited from our ancestors. This includes defining a robust process to ensure sound project development incorporating both traditional and scientific knowledge and managing our land from this foundation. Our work is both conceptual and on the ground.
