Chiefs of Ontario Environmental Assessment Toolkit
The purpose of this Toolkit is to assist First Nations in Ontario whose Aboriginal rights, title or treaty rights may be affected by a project undergoing an environmental assessment (EA). This Toolkit is designed primarily for First Nations leadership, employees and communities. It is meant to provide information and practical advice that will help First Nations participate effectively in EA processes. It is hoped that this Toolkit will help your First Nation develop strategies and decision-making processes that benefit your community and result in favorable outcomes from EAs.
