NationsConnect was created by
Kwusen Research & Media
to streamline the consultation process for government
organizations, industry, and Indigenous communities. Previously,
government and industry submitted consultations to Indigenous
communities by registered mail, email, or electronically via
Community KnowledgeKeeper (CKK)
systems. The result was that government and industry were
required to manage multiple forms of communication for a single
project and enter the same data into multiple CKK systems.
Similarly, Indigenous communities were receiving information on
projects through multiple channels and left to manage multiple,
redundant, and often inconsistent project information that
created extra work in their already overburdened offices.
With a simple, user-friendly process, NationsConnect allows
government and industry users to submit consultation projects
directly to multiple Indigenous communities at once. Projects
are sent to a CKK or as email notifications to communities that
do not have a need for their own dedicated CKK system.
