General targeted recipient groups Indigenous groups (individual or a collective representing more than one Indigenous group) and validly incorporated or registered non-profit organizations (such as band councils) that participate in the EA and/or can demonstrate that they have interests in potential projects’ impacts on treaty lands, settlement lands or traditional territories and/or related claims and rights.
