Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas: What Does That Mean, and What Could That Look Like?

Updated: Nov 2, 2021

Cambium Indigenous Professional Services (CIPS) is proud to announce that our very own Kerry-Ann Charles has been asked to be a moderator at the Latornell Conservation Symposium Webinar entitled "Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas: What Does That Mean, and What Could That Look Like?"

This webinar will feature several Indigenous speakers who will share their experiences in regards to the development of Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs) in Ontario.

Kerry-Ann will be moderating this very important webinar which will be examining the evolution of IPCA's and other Indigenous Governance structures developing in Ontario. Through a moderated question and answer period the speakers will dive into questions such as:

- How can First Nations partner with ENGOs and land trusts to protect these lands?

- Can IPCAs be a tool for reconciliation?

- What does ‘land back” mean?

Kerry-Ann who is the Environmental Partnership Coordinator (at CIPS) as well as a Latornell Symposium Steering Committee Member since 2017 has over 20 years experience and is a well sought after moderator and guest speaker. Her valuable input and insights will help provide direction to participants and speakers with key ideas and information regarding Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas.

CIPS is honored to be a part of the Latornell Conservation Symposium Webinar and look forward to participating in this very important webinar session.
