OPPI Planning & Archaeology Session


The Lakeland Planners of the OPPI (Ontario Professional Planners Institute) hosted an event on February 16, 2007, at the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority's Tiffin Building, regarding the new Ministry of Culture Technical Standards and Guidelines for Consulting Archaeologists, which was attended by dozens of interested parties. This event was organized by Michael Henry, Managing Partner of AMICK Consultants Limited, and was sponsored by AMICK Consultants Limited.

The event was held to present an overview of the Standards and Guidelines, and how it would impact archaeology.Many attendees braved a cold February morning to arrive at the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority, located in Utopia, Ontario. The day was filled with intent discussion of serious matters concerning the First Nations, planners, developers, and archaeologists.

Guest speakers included Dr. Peter Timmins, member of the executive of the Association of Professional Archaeologists, of Timmins Martelle Heritage Consultants Inc., who provided an overview and discussion of the new documents; Mr. Fred Flood, CAO of the Corporation of the Town of Midland, who discussed his personal experience of the discover of an ossuary during development in Midland; Mr. Jeff Cowan, who discussed the legal implications of recent rulings by the courts, and the current planning context as it relates to First Nation ancestral sites; and Mr. Michael Henry, Managing Partner of AMICK Consultants Limited, who provided an overview and discussion of Aboriginal engagement as outlined in the proposed new Standards and Guidelines.

Our thanks go out to the attendees of the event, as well as the guest speakers for their insight on the topics. Also, special thanks go out to the people involved with the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority for facilitating the event, and to the Lakeland Planners of the OPPI for hosting. The staff of AMICK Consultants Limited supported the event logistically, as they attended by volunteering their own time and efforts on the day.
