Context. The Government of Canada consults with Aboriginal people for reasons of good governance, sound policy development and decision-making as well as for legal reasons. Canada has statutory, contractual and common law obligations to consult with Aboriginal groups. The Government of Canada will take a “Whole of Government” approach to Aboriginal consultation in the context of major resource projects to ensure that Aboriginal groups are sufficiently consulted, and where appropriate accommodated, when it contemplates actions that may adversely affect established or potential Aboriginal and treaty rights. These rights are recognized and affirmed in Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. This approach is mandated by both the Cabinet Directive on Improving the Performance of the Regulatory System for Major Resource Projects and the associated Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) (June, 2007). The Directive states that Parties will work together towards a coordinated approach for Aboriginal consultation that is integrated with the EA, to the extent possible. The approach for federal consultation of Aboriginal groups for major resource projects was created in accordance with Aboriginal Consultation and Accommodation: Updated Guidelines for Federal Officials to Fulfill the Duty to Consult (AANDC; March 2011).

Context. For over 15 years, the University of Kent has concerned itself with widening access to higher education to all those who could benefit and has delivered major innovation and success in this field alongside the University’s core objectives of excellence in teaching and research. Our continued commitment to widen access has resulted in the development of a multimillion pound campus at Medway, significant investment in a range of nationally recognised outreach schemes, as well as providing a focus for excellence in the region through our association with a number of Partner Schools and Colleges. The University is proud of these achievements, particularly since our engagement with widening access pre- dates the wider sector and was driven by an institutional commitment, rather than external drivers, to the provision of higher education to all those who were intellectually able. Further, we have balanced this commitment to widen participation with our externally confirmed position as a research led University which delivers quality teaching. Our most visible investment in widening access is the development of Kent’s Medway campus, a key component in the regeneration of the Medway towns. A development of this nature is resource hungry and further investment at Medway is still vital as student numbers grow. We must also maintain and update the infrastructure at our Canterbury campus in order to accommodate the growth in our student body and to continue to make available the information service provision our students expect. These substantial upgrades and refurbishments are planned for the next few years, so the significant cut in the University’s capital grant from HEFCE will have a major impact on our infrastructure development unless we secure alternative sources of income. Our starting position in preparing our Access Agreement is one of strength, through proven delivery against the WP agenda and as an institution meeting the majority of HEFCE PI benchmarks – and delivering significantly beyond the expected values in some areas. Therefore, we have assessed ourselves against the OFFA criteria, conservatively, as an institution as having a ‘slightly above average proportion of under-represented students.’ Nonetheless, we intend to commit over 20% of our spend to outreach, retention and financial support to under-represented groups, rising to 23% in 2015/16 at steady-state. Our success in attracting considerable numbers of WP classified students to Kent means tha...
