Annual Reports

Mi’kmaq-PEI-Canada Consultation Agreement

The Governments of Canada and PEI, along with the Mi’kmaq of Prince Edward Island, signed a landmark consultation agreement on August 13, 2012. The Agreement establishes a clear and efficient means for Canada and PEI to consult the Mi’kmaq on proposed actions or decisions that may adversely impact asserted or established Aboriginal and treaty rights.

Canada-PEI Mi’kmaq Partnership Agreement

Three levels of governments came together in December 2007 to sign the historic Canada-PEI Mi’kmaq Partnership Agreement. The Agreement formally acknowledged the traditional Mi’kmaq Governments and their important role in building a strong and positive future for members of PEI First Nations. It is a commitment by the Federal and Provincial Governments to work more closely with Mi’kmaq Governments in Lennox Island and Abegweit (Scotchfort, Rocky Point and Morell Rear), on many key issues, mainly education, health, child/family services, justice, culture and economic development.

The PEI-Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI Economic Development Agreement

The PEI-Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI (the Confederacy)Economic Development Agreement was signed during the third annual Provincial Cabinet-Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI Board of Directors Forum (June 2014). The four-year partnership agreement includes a secondment of an official to Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI to serve as its Economic Development Officer, annual economic development funding, an equity contribution for economic development initiatives and a strategically located portion of crown land.

Ethics Review Committee

The Ethics Review Committee is an independent body within the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI that reviews all Confederacy and outside research proposals involving the two PEI First Nations to determine ethical implications and decide whether additional actions are required to assure the safety and rights of participants, as well as eliminate redundant or unnecessary research studies.

Please note: We, as a committee, respectfully disagree with the Mi’kmaw Ethics Watch in the following circumstance. As a non-exhaustive list, in research projects where there are questions about sensitive or personal issues; psychological or emotional risk; economic or social risk; risks to participants due to power imbalance and/or language and cultural sensitivities risk, the Mi’kmaq Confederacy Ethics Review committee perceives the minimum age without a parent or guardian signed consent, as eighteen (18) years old.

Please use the Ethics Review Application Form for submissions to the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI Ethics Review Committee.
