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 workshop will take a deep dive into First Nations principles of OCAP® and First Nations data sovereignty, and will discuss the importance of each. This workshop expands on the September 2021 presentation by Kristine Neglia, and provides real examples and practical ways to incorporate OCAP® principles into evaluation. This 4-hour workshop will be held over 2 days in 2-hour sessions.
Kristine Neglia is the Manager, OCAP® & Information Governance with the First Nations Information Governance Centre. Responsible for education and training activities, Kristine supports First Nations, Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations increase their knowledge and skills related to OCAP®, Information Governance, and First Nations Data Sovereignty.
