In the spring of 2013, to offset a lack of information being provided to the public, the OFAH, CSIA and FOCA conducted public meetings in Perth, Stittsville, North Bay, Pembroke and Bancroft; key areas impacted upon by the land claim. However, there are a number of people who hunt and fish within the area of the claim or who may have cottages, hunt camps or land use permits who may be affected, but did not have a chance to hear the presentations and access the information available at the public meetings.
In an effort to bridge the knowledge gap, and to reach as many people as possible, the three organizations decided that a webcast was the best platform to reach as many people as possible.
