Strategic Initiatives

Strategic Initiatives assists Aboriginal communities and other parties with land management and resource development issues related to consultation. Each issue is analyzed to determine the primary elements, related issues, and who should be informed and involved in resolution. This work then informs strategies for capacity building, policy and guideline development, training and outreach activities.

Strategic Initiatives provides advice and guidance to other ministries and Aboriginal communities as they plan or engage in consultation. The division supports the delivery of consultation-related services with other government departments through the negotiation of service agreements and by coordinating Alberta’s responses to Aboriginal inquiries related to the Integrated Resource Management System (IRMS). Strategic Initiatives also assists in the coordinated provincial response to emergencies.
