All federal organizations have a responsibility to design and deliver policies and programs that comply with the rights and obligations of modern treaties and self-government agreements with Indigenous Peoples. This course for policy and program officers provides a comprehensive overview about how the federal government is expected to work with Indigenous Peoples to implement modern treaties and self-government agreements. Participants will learn how to conduct an Assessment of Modern Treaty Implications and apply a modern treaty and self-government lens to the development of policies, programs and services.

Topics include:

  • building strong relationships and resolving disputes
  • reviewing the content and structure of agreements
  • clarifying the roles and responsibilities of federal officials
  • reviewing the implementation process and its challenges
  • understanding the historical, legal and policy context of modern treaties and self-government agreements


This course is intended for policy and program officers whose responsibilities require a comprehensive understanding of modern treaties and self-government agreements.

This course consists of six 2-hour sessions with rest days in between. During these rest days, participants will be asked to complete 20 to 30 minutes of self-paced learning activities each week and one group assignment.
