The Archaeological Management Plan will result in new tools and frameworks that strengthen the City’s planning and policy processes for archaeological resource management. It will help decision-makers and planners make informed decisions that comply with provincial policies and regulations.
Key deliverables to be produced as part of the AMP in order to develop an effective, municipal decision-making tool, include:
- A comprehensive background review to compile a thorough understanding of the City’s existing histories, resources, and policies, and a benchmarking exercise to establish initial AMP objectives based on best practices
- A comprehensive set of Geographical Information System (GIS) based mapping that identifies areas of archaeological potential
- Development of a robust engagement program with the First Nations and Indigenous Communities
- Proposed new protocols, policies, and management strategies to be integrated into the City’s Official Plan and planning framework
The City will engage with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Huron-Wendat Nation, Six Nations of the Grand River, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council and the Urban Indigenous community throughout the year-long AMP project.
We invite you to share your feedback and engage with our educational materials, such as the Archaeological Management Plan Survey.
