Fundamentals of OCAP

The First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC) is pleased to introduce the “Fundamentals of OCAP®”, a new online training course developed in partnership with Algonquin College.

This comprehensive overview of the First Nations principles of OCAP® (Ownership, Control, Access and Possession) is a result of the requests we have received in recent years from First Nations, students, researchers, academics, federal officials and other interested individuals – nationally and internationally who are looking to gain a better understanding of OCAP® and how it pertains to principled research, data sovereignty, and information governance that respects First Nations.

We value your feedback and recommendations for this and future training programs to be developed by the FNIGC, so please let us know if there is any way we might improve this course. Contact us at ocap@fnigc.ca.
