dc.description.abstractThis study explores engagement with Northern and Indigenous peoples and communities, using principles and practices that are currently being used within and outside of the nuclear energy sector. The project seeks to identify gaps in current nuclear energy engagement, explore the legal requirements for proponents, and provide recommendations for improved engagement with the Indigenous community in the nuclear energy sector. Canada has committed to reducing its annual carbon emissions significantly by the year 2020. The framework to reduce emissions includes an energy strategy. One such solution to offset carbon emissions from energy sources is the increased use of nuclear energy. However, if increased use of nuclear energy is going to be a government priority, early public participation is essential. Public Participation processes needs to be meaningful and rooted in knowledge sharing and collaboration. An informed and communicative process is accomplished through an early consultation process. To effect meaningful change, and adequately present the public with the proper tools to make informed decisions, the responsibility for this consultation process should fall within the mandate of the entire industry. The future of energy policy in Canada is currently unknown, with the potential to shift and change as technologies and new policies are created. Building a relationship based on trust, legitimacy and knowledge co-production will be in the long-term benefit of both the nuclear industry and the public.en_US
