Round Table Discussions

1) Sustainable Health of Indigenous and Northern Populations  INQ in collaboration with the RISUQ

We will investigate Indigenous culture, including food, in relation to sustainable health and well-being to better understand the issues and challenges associated with these themes. Education and knowledge transmission will also be among the themes addressed in this panel.

2) What is the future for Caribou?

Panelists will present a biological portrait of the three ecotypes of caribou present in Quebec; highlight the conservation issues that concern caribou and the practices put in place at the national level to preserve them; provide an analytical review of the experiences of co-management of the caribou in Canada; and take a behind the scenes look at the historic agreement between the Innu and Cree nations on the hunting of caribou and the singularity of the relationship between the Innu culture and the caribou
