Treaty Relations, Planning & Indigenous Consultation at the City of Toronto | EUC Seminar Series, Polishing the Chain: Treaty Relations in Toronto – November 23, 2021
Treaties, the Crown’s Duty to Consult, and Ontario’s Provincial Planning Policy Statement have triggered new practices of Indigenous consultation and urban planning in Toronto. To what extent does city planning include Indigenous nations and communities? To what extent do Indigenous peoples have meaningful authority or decision-making power in relation to Land and Waters? To what extent does the City recognize and enable their ability to practice ceremony, plant and harvest food and medicines, or enact stewardship responsibilities?
This recorded seminar is the third of six in the EUC Seminar Series, Polishing the Chain: Treaty Relations in Toronto over the 2021-2022 academic school year. This discussion features three friends of Shared Path: Selina Young, Indigenous Affairs Office for the City of Toronto; Leela Viswanathan, Queen’s University & Viswali Consulting; and Bob Goulais, Nbisiing Consulting.
