Project success for resource developers and businesses is vitally linked to addressing perceived or real impacts and exploring opportunities to maximize the benefits that local communities are seeking. C3’s team of highly experienced professionals have a deep and practical understanding of the resource and business sectors, Indigenous histories, cultures and traditions, and optimum and strategic approaches to engaging with all levels of government.
Our team includes skilled and experienced resource sector professionals with strong proven communication and negotiation skills. We assist First Nations, local communities, resource developers, businesses, and government on strategies and effective approaches that maximize local benefits from project development. We work to alleviate the fears and concerns linked to projects, implement practical solutions to address concerns, and incorporate traditional knowledge and local input into project plans. In addition to our front-line engagement, relationship development and negotiation skills, we also provide workshops on the basics of:
the mining, energy, and forestry sector;
crisis communications; and
impact benefit agreements.
We play a key role in assisting communities to understand industries and projects and help them prepare, address any concerns, and maximize on opportunities. Click here for more information about C3’s workshops.
