This report is the result of a collaborative research project undertaken by a team of University of Toronto graduate students under the guidance of the Shared Path Consultation Initiative.

2.) To develop an evaluation framework through which municipal Official Plans could be assessed for consistency with the 2020 PPS directives on Indigenous rights, and which could function as a guiding reference document for implementation work at the municipal level.
