Document History of REGDOC-3.2.2, Indigenous Engagement
REGDOC-3.2.2, Indigenous Engagement, version 1.1, sets out requirements and guidance for licensees whose proposed projects may raise the Crown’s duty to consult. While the CNSC cannot delegate its obligation, it can delegate procedural aspects of the consultation process to licensees. The information collected and measures proposed by licensees to avoid, mitigate or offset adverse impacts may be used by the CNSC in meeting its consultation obligations. The requirements in this document are in addition to those found in REGDOC 3.2.1, Public Information and Disclosure, and are meant to ensure that potential or established Indigenous and/or treaty rights are considered.
The implementation of REGDOC-3.2.2, version 1.1 is expected to lead to more effective and efficient Indigenous engagement practices, strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities, assist the CNSC in meeting its duty to consult obligations, and reduce the risk of delays in the regulatory review processes.
