FNIGC and Algonquin develop first-ever OCAP training course

February 10, 2016

The First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC) has partnered with Algonquin College to develop a new online training course called “The Fundamentals of OCAP.” The course is reportedly the first to deal solely with the First Nations principles of ownership, control, access, and possession (OCAP), considered the gold standard of how to collect, protect, use, and share First Nations data. The online course consists of seven modules and a short test; learners who complete the test successfully will receive a statement of achievement from Algonquin. The course is designed for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, researchers, educators, government employees, and anyone interested in Indigenous information governance issues. FNIGC
