Ottawa Focus Group

From May 5-6, 2016, ABS Canada held the second of three scheduled capacity-building workshops and focus groups on Access and Benefit Sharing with Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples. The forum’s objectives included awareness-raising, capacity-building, and identification and discussion of issues relating to ABS in Canada from Aboriginal and other stakeholder perspectives. Insights collectively generated from this participatory forum are expected to support future policy developments or implementation of national or international ABS frameworks in Canada in ways that reflect and embody Aboriginal sensitivities and interests in ABS in Canada.
