This briefing reviews how stakeholders are trying to balance the economic benefits of major natural resource projects in the North with their social and environmental costs.

Document Highlights

Major natural resource projects in the North are by their nature large, capital intensive, and of finite duration. This briefing reviews how stakeholders are trying to balance the economic benefits of major natural resource projects in the North with their social and environmental costs. It looks at the impact and benefit agreements used by industry to address the social, economic, cultural, and environmental concerns of Aboriginal communities impacted by major resource projects; at the regulatory processes that aim to balance the costs and benefits; and at innovative practices that are emerging to enhance the benefits of major resource projects while mitigating their negative impacts.
