First Nations Consultation
OutSource Seismic has extensive experience consulting and working together with First Nations where seismic programs may have the potential to adversely impact the First Nations’ Rights and Traditional Uses of public lands. Examples of areas, which require consultation, are burial grounds, gathering sites, historic or ceremonial locations, and existing constitutionally protected rights to hunt, trap and fish. OutSource will include in its consultation the employment of the First Nation’s people ensuring all safety requirements such as training and certification to industry standards are achieved.
