Impact Benefit Agreements

We bring a depth of experience in the negotiations of impact-benefit agreements in the forestry, mining, oil and gas and other natural resource-based industries. Common terms of such agreements include: training opportunities, contributions to education trusts, greater Aboriginal business opportunities, preferential hiring of community members, enhanced contracting options in the bidding process and improved review and participation in all regulatory applications. In the end, one of the key areas that Aboriginal peoples can benefit from in any project is to be fully involved in every aspect of its development. A well negotiated impact benefit agreement can ensure that your members and businesses are involved from the start to the end of the project, and, importantly, that it is truly a sustainable development.
