Consultation with First Nations is a legal, necessary and important aspect of doing business with First Nations and working on First Nation lands.
The duty to consult has roots in the federal government and is tied to Canada’s Constitution Act. Thus, any projects or business activities conducted in the traditional area of Liard First Nation subject to federal regulatory project approvals, licensing and authorization of permits, operational decisions, policy development, negotiations and so on, trigger the duty to consult with Liard First Nation before proceeding.
Please contact the Executive Council Office of Liard First Nation for further information regarding initiating engagement and consultation programs with leadership and the LFN community:
