As land claim issues are settled and the appropriate boards and committees are set up in this land claim region, the consultation process will likely be altered simultaneously. At present, a general guideline for the consultation process for proposed research in the South Slave Region is as follows:
- If research is to take place within the municipal limits of the community, contact the Municipal Council(s);
- If research involves community residents, contact the local Band Council(s) and Métis Local(s); and
- If the research is to take place outside the community’s municipal limits, contact the local Renewable Resources Council (RRC) or Hunters and Trappers Committee (HTC). If the community does not have a formal HTC, contact the local Band Council and/or Métis Local.
- All researchers must contact the appropriate Regional Councils, and Committees regarding their studies.
