Algonquin First Nations want consultation on huge Ottawa development

National Capital Commission has no official policy on consultation

APTN National News
A federal government agency that manages thousands of hectares of Ottawa and Gatineau land is being slammed for not having an official protocol for consulting Indigenous communities about land use.

The agency, called the National Capital Commission, has been spearheading the development of a huge plot of downtown land called the LeBreton Flats.

As the development moves forward, the Algonquin communities whose unceded territory it rests on are worried about being left out of consultations.

APTN’s Rachel Gilmore has the story.
