Our Working Groups

The Forum’s working groups support the implementation of the Together for Wildlife Strategy.

Wildlife and Habitat Policy Working Group

(Formerly known as the Indigenous knowledge Working Group)

Supports Action 20 (incorporate Indigenous knowledge into wildlife stewardship decision-making) – policy and procedure to support the proposed Wildlife Act amendments.

Communication and Education Working Group

Supports Action 19 (develop communication and extension materials on Indigenous worldviews) – websites, resources, LEH Cultural and Education pilot, incorporation of IK into Provincial documents.

We will achieve this vision by practicing the teachings of our ancestors, following the best of Indigenous knowledge systems and western science for wildlife and habitat stewardship, adhering to open and transparent relations amongst all parties, and keeping the best interests of future generations in mind.

Shared Decision-Making Working Group Implementing the Together for Wildlife Strategy

Supports Actions 18 (to advance shared decision making) and 23 (building capacity) of the Together for Wildlife strategy – Review of legislations and regulations and incorporation of shared decision making.
