Aboriginal Edge: Confrontation OR Aboriginal and Industry Partnerships

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce says collaboration with Aboriginal communities is key in natural resource development.

 

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce recently published a report on one of the most critical issues facing Canada's natural resources sector: engaging and involving the First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities that live near or on the land where projects operate.  The report is titled Aboriginal Edge: How Aboriginal Peoples and Natural Resource Businesses Are Forging a New Competitive Advantage.  

Aboriginal and Industry Partnerships

There is a strong trend toward collaborative Aboriginal and industry partnerships.  It's not always easy to move collaboration forward, but the trend is real.  Despite much of what we may see and hear in the media about confrontational relationships between industry and  First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities, the reality behind the scenes is that there is a trend toward constructive dialogue, efforts at collaborative planning, and successful collaborations.  The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Report will help make it clear that constructive dialogue, collaboration and partnering is the "new normal" in Canada.  We couldn't agree more.

  • Government, NGO, indigenous and religious leaders working with miners in harmony
  • The mining industry attracting the best talent
  • Innovation in mining that includes collaborative and co-innovation processes, as well as sustainable technical advances

Aboriginal and Industry Partnerships - Investors Speak Loudly!

Posted by Don Richardson

on Jan 29, 2015 12:09:00 PM

Investors are speaking up - loudly - on the need for meaningful First Nation, Inuit and Métis partnerships in Canada

 

This quote from the Globe and Mail speaks loudly:

“Address us with an opportunity.  The global investor would like to be approached with a joint venture [involving industry and Aboriginal communities]... You have to be world leaders [on social engagement]”

- Rick Rule, Chairman of Sprott US Holdings

 

Now it's time to act.  Firms like Shared Value Solutions Ltd. are busy executing innovative and mutually beneficial Aboriginal and industry partnerships across sectors.  But some companies, and some sectors, like the mining sector, has been slow to respond to the opportunities.
