Expanding Capacity is Always Part of the Plan. 

A lands department plays a crucial role in protecting your Nation’s Rights and lands in the face of development while furthering the prosperity of your people. Our team can help you build your lands and consultation department into a well-oiled machine that hums with the knowledge it is effectively protecting what matters most to your Nation —and supporting your economic development goals. Here’s how:

Lands and Consultation Department Set Ups and Tune-ups

From systems to screen and prioritize consultation requests to roles and responsibilities, communication, workflows, and funding sources, we work with you to design or improve a structure you can build on and sustain.

Remote Contract Lands and Consultation Department

Under the direction of your leadership team, we can take care of managing all — or parts — of your department to achieve the best outcomes on reserve and territory wide. Short- or longer-term options available.
