Project Coordinator – UNDRIP
Dr. TJ (Tuma) Wilson is the UNDRIP Project Coordinator for the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs Secretariat. After receiving his Juris Doctorate from the Schulich School of Law, TJ worked several files relating to Indigenous rights with Burchells LLP.
His desire to work solely for the cause of Indigenous rights drew him to the Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs Secretariat. TJ is a practicing member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, a status member of L’sitkuk Mi’kmaw First Nation, and enjoys music and hunting in his free time.
TJ is excited to connect with all our communities to help further self-determination and prosperity through the UNDRIP Project. His work will consist largely of educating and learning from our communities to draft a report for the Government of Canada’s Action Plan relating to UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. After the report is drafted and submitted the further work of the UNDRIP Project will be to monitor the Government’s action related to their plan and further educate Indigenous rights holders through programs and outreach.
