We use the term consultation when the Government of Yukon has a legal obligation to consult, such as consultation requirements established in Yukon statutes and in treaties signed with Indigenous governments and groups.

We do not use the term "consultation" to refer to engagement with individuals or the public, or when engaging with Indigenous governments or groups when there is no legal obligation to consult. 

Not: consulting with Indigenous people, consulting with First Nations people, consulting First Nations 

But:  consulting with Indigenous governments and groups, consulting with First Nations governments, engaging with Indigenous people, engaging First Nations
