"Having recently completed training with Indigenous Corporate Training, I'm pleased to see the materials and supporting information book updated to address the evolving nature of relationships, modern treaties, the evolving legal climate, and shifts in engagement and consultation activities when working with First Nations. Having taken this course years ago, the new material is valuable in understanding the evolution of First Nations' application of rights and title cases across Canada's legal system."
