April 22 Meetup - First Nations Data Sovereignty using OCAP®

2021-04-19 10:45 AM | Corine Jansonius

Did you know that the First Nations have a framework for Information Governance, OCAP®? I first heard of this last year, and have wanted to learn more.

So I am delighted  that Data for Good YYC's April topic is "First Nations Data Sovereignty using OCAP®".

The presenter is Kristine Neglia, Manager of OCAP & Information Governance with the First Nations Information Governance Centre.

Come join us this Thursday, April 22, 7 pm, to learn more!


The First Nations principles of OCAP® offer a framework for how First Nations’ data and information should be collected, protected, used, and shared.

Standing for ownership, control, access, and possession, OCAP® is a tool to support strong information governance on the path to First Nations data sovereignty.

Using historical and current research and data management issues, this presentation will explore the First Nations principles of OCAP® and First Nations data sovereignty and discuss the importance of each.
