Members of IAMC’s Indigenous Caucus recently met with Deputy Minister Christyne Tremblay and Associate Deputy Minister Shawn Tupper from Natural Resources Canada. “They wanted to learn more about our advice to their Minister concerning the government’s upcoming decision on Trans Mountain,” said Michelle Wilsdon. “This is advice coming from our communities, through the Indigenous Caucus,” she added.

IAMC members from five federal departments and the National Energy Board also participated in talks that focused on Indigenous monitoring, emergency management and partnership. “For the past year and a half, we’ve been building trust and respect around the IAMC table,” said Naina Sloan. “It’s a reason for optimism as we carry on with our work,” she added.
