This report provides guidance for implementing new requirements in the Government of Canada’s proposed Impact Assessment Act, specifically to apply a feminist and intersectional lens when examining potential impacts of major resource-extraction projects on Indigenous women. The report draws on Indigenous women’s experiences surrounding resource development and considers how Indigenous Peoples’ knowledges can guide resource-related decisions in order to strengthen impact assessment processes for Indigenous women.
