OPG partnered with the Métis Nation of Ontario’s Georgian Bay Traditional Territory Consultation Committee (GBTTCC) to complete a traditional knowledge and land use study (TKLUS) for OPG’s Deep Geologic Repository (DGR). Traditional knowledge is rooted in the traditional life and practices of Indigenous peoples. 

This partnership resulted in the completion of a number of oral history interviews with community members to capture and understand traditional culture and land use practices of the Métis. Currently, OPG is working with the GBTTCC on a valued ecological component (VEC) study, assessing those components within the environment at and near the DGR which may have a scientific, social or cultural significance.

In combination with other information sources, traditional knowledge is valuable for achieving a better understanding of potential impacts of projects like the DGR. Although the basis for traditional and science-based knowledge can differ, they can on their own or together contribute to an understanding of the environment.

Wild leek is traditionally used by Métis as a medicinal herb to treat sore throats.
