Creating a Vision, Principles, and Objectives for Data Governance and Management

The Indigenous Community Development National Strategy  (ICDNS) is a jointly-developed approach to building and investing in strong, effective, and sustainable Indigenous governments and services. ISC and CIRNAC are working with Indigenous Advisors from across the country to implement the national Strategy. As the Strategy is implemented in each province and territory, a regional Working Group and Implementation Work Plan will be developed. The Strategy will provide support to community planning initiatives. Over the next phase of implementation, training for entry-level Community Planning Facilitators will be piloted. A continuum of capacity development training options will be developed to provide on-going learning and networking opportunities for Community Planning Facilitators.
