The First Nations of Québec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute (FNQLSDI) was created in 2000 by the Chiefs of the Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL). Its mission is to offer First Nations a dynamic service hub, supporting their actions towards maintaining healthy territories and resources, developing sustainable communities and promoting the recognition of their rights. The FNQLSDI offers diverse services to the 43 First Nations in Quebec and Labrador. These services respect the priorities, needs and vision identified by the communities themselves.
The Centre of Expertise on Impact and Benefit Agreements (IBAs) was created with the objective of supporting First Nations at the various stages of the complex process of negotiating an IBA while enabling them to avoid the financial burden associated with such negotiations. The Centre offers ongoing training and workshops to First Nations regarding all aspects of IBA negotiation and implementation. The aim of this year’s IBA workshop-based conference is for First Nations to participate in roundtable discussions, exchange information and hear about what other communities and Indigenous governments are doing related to IBAs.
