HIA 2012 - HIA Practice in Aboriginal Contexts in Canada: How, to What End, and by Whom? - Workshop
As part of the 12th International Conference on HIA held in Québec City in August 2012, the NCCHPP organized this discussion workshop.
Published in December 2012.  Description.
.
Although the practice of HIA has grown up considerably in recent years in many parts of the world, it is still being developed in Canada, and its currency is even more limited in Aboriginal contexts. These contexts are characterized by cultural, geographical and historical diversity among First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada which makes the development of HIA practice more complex.

Based on the interest shown in some proposals for workshops at the international HIA conference and the presence of participants from countries where the practice of HIA has been established in Aboriginal contexts, the NCCHPP organized a discussion on this topic to help to guide future development in Canada.
