Developed by teams at the Prairie Climate Centre (PCC) and the University of Manitoba, this interactive and evidence-based resource combines climate science and mapping to provide a local context for climate change in Canadian communities. Content is developed in collaboration with local and Indigenous knowledge holders, for a truly unique and comprehensive perspective on how climate change is impacting Canadian communities.
FNIGC Data Online is an online service from the First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC), Canada’s premier source of information about First Nations people living on reserve and in northern communities across Canada.
The home of the First Nations Information Governance Centre’s national reports and publications, as well as important resources and tools, the First Nations Information Governance Centre’s Online Library is the most complete resource for First Nations produced data and data-related information from the First Nations Information Governance Centre.
The First Nations principles of ownership, control, access, and possession – more commonly known as OCAP® – assert that First Nations have control over data collection processes, and that they own and control how this information can be used.
FNIGC offers a variety of education and training options to support both First Nations and others in asserting, respecting, and promoting OCAP®. The Fundamentals of OCAP® online course provides a foundation in OCAP® and introduces knowledge that can be translated into practical skills in a variety of settings.

"Participatory conservation planning aims for the use of complementary knowledge from Western science and local/Indigenous communities. As in the case of monitoring, participatory conservation planning makes use of scale complementarities between the two kinds of knowledge" (Johnson, 2016).
It has long been claimed that addressing biodiversity loss and other environmental problems demands a better understanding of the social dimensions of conservation; nevertheless, the active participation of indigenous peoples and local communities (IPLCs) in conservation initiatives is still a challenging and somehow controversial issue. In this context, this book hopes to give voice to other perspectives related to biodiversity conservation beyond the “fortress conservation” model and emphasize one of the pillars of democracy – popular participation...
