In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The legal and political foundations of resource sharing with Indigenous peoples in Canada
- Provincial and territorial variations in resource revenue sharing, including a consideration of the federal government’s role in resource revenue sharing
- New models and options in resource revenue sharing, including sharing within and between Indigenous groups
- How resource revenue sharing system design must be pursued within a wider framework of policy objectives, in order to advance reconciliation, build capacity within Indigenous communities and government; and promote responsible resource development; and
- How decisions to design and implement a resource revenue sharing system are actually as important (if not more important) than whatever system is ultimately implemented.
