Throughout the development of the Framework we  needed to ensure there was a balance between following established City processes and applying an Indigenous approach to this work. To ensure our process reflected Indigenous cultural practices and knowledge, we worked with Indigenous thought leaders and sought out Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers from Nations in Treaties 6, 7, and 8, Métis, and Inuit communities. The content below showcases some of the ways that we have embedded Indigenous culture and world views into the Framework.
