A Traditional Use Study can identify where Aboriginal people hunt, fish, and trap on public land. Information contained in a TUS can also inform resource management decision-making and flag where potential conflicts might exist.

During consultation, a TUS can help avoid infringements of Aboriginal and treaty rights in Alberta, especially where the Aboriginal community shares the identity of significant sites with the province.

TUS information can help resource management decision-making and help build positive relationships between the First Nation, government and industry that serve as the foundation to future consultation activities.
