The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and University of Guelph are seeking a researcher to help support work emerging from the Indigenous land trust working group of the Conservation through Reconciliation Partnership. The project will explore the concept of Indigenous land trusts, with a focus on: i) identifying and examining the conditions under which the Indigenous land trust model can support Indigenous-led conservation efforts, and ii) identifying ways in which to change the land trust model so that conservation on private lands is more compatible with Indigenous worldviews, governance, and values.
