The Use and Abuse of Traditional Knowledge

Submitted By: James Tanner December 23, 2016

This presentation will focus on two primary umbrella areas of concern and propose solutions
and approaches. The two issues are:
1) In Canadian Environmental Assessment, the use and abuse of Traditional Knowledge
including Traditional Environmental Knowledge, Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Local
Knowledge, and its relationship with traditional land use and Aboriginal rights, and
2) the treatment of impacts on Aboriginal rights under the Canadian Act, including specifically
the importance, role and proper methodology for measuring cumulative impacts on Aboriginal
rights and the role of longer term planning and monitoring.
