1 minute read

On 8 February, the IOG and the Office of the Chief Science Advisor co-hosted a roundtable discussion on opportunities for interweaving Indigenous Knowledge and Western Science in federal public policy. The discussion brought together almost 40 leaders from the federal government, non-profit, private sectors and academia from across Canada for a day of facilitated conversations about Indigenous Knowledge and the decolonization of the federal policy making process.

The conversations were based on the following summary of literature on Indigenous Knowledge and advance interviews with all roundtable participants. A summary report of the roundtable is available by request to Rhonda Moore, rmoore@iog.ca.
