Parks Canada is launching a process to recruit members for a new Indigenous Cultural Heritage Advisory Council. The purpose of the Council is to support Parks Canada to adapt its cultural heritage processes and policies to be more inclusive of Indigenous peoples and their perspectives. This work stems from the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the two Indigenous cultural heritage gatherings which Parks Canada hosted last fall.
Through the Council, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people will share perspectives and provide advice to Parks Canada on cultural heritage-related projects or initiatives. The Council will be composed of 6-8 Indigenous people who have significant knowledge or expertise in the area of cultural heritage.
The application deadline is Friday, August 23rd, 2019. Send your resume and letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 613-937-1309.
More details about the role of the Council, the recruitment process and next steps can be found on their website at: www.pc.gc.ca/en/culture/autochtones-indigenous/conseil-council.
