Three Frameworks of Consent

This factsheet provides an overview of three frameworks of consent: The Duty to Consult & Accommodate, Free, Prior and Informed Consent, and Community Conceptions of Consent. This resource was created as part of the Yellowhead Institute Land Back Red Paper. The project of land back is about reclaiming Indigenous jurisdiction: breathing life into rights and responsibilities. This Red Paper is about how Canada dispossesses Indigenous peoples from the land, and in turn, what communities are doing to get it back.
