Changes in resource development practices and law (for example matters related to UNDRIP, DRIPA, FPIC and so on) have increased the demand for individuals with the expertise to establish effective working relationships among industries, governments and Aboriginal/Indigenous groups. To meet this need, the CFAR Society was formed as a professional peer group to share experiences and wise practices. Our members work together for mutual benefit and personal development, while striving to achieve greater credibility for the profession, in a non-political environment. Annual membership runs from April 1-March 31. Thank you for your support over the last twenty years!

Our membership is comprised of representatives of:

• First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities and organizations,
• Students considering Indigenous relations as a career opportunity,
• Government employees,
• Corporations, and
• Individual professionals with experience or interest in this complex area.

Currently our corporate members, strong supporters of community first wise practices in Indigenous Community Industry Relations,  include:
