Let’s Talk Impact Benefit Agreements

Let’s Talk Impact Benefits Agreements (IBA) focusses on the IBA negotiations process and includes information on how to negotiate a basic framework of an IBA and best practices in IBA negotiations strategies.

 Key outcomes for the participants include:

  • obtaining information on the status of Impact Benefit Agreements between First Nations, companies, and government across the province;
  • examining the strategies and foundations of Impact Benefit Agreements;
  • reviewing the contents of typical agreements and how to make them work for the community;
  • understanding the strategies and requirements of the community in implementing Impact Benefit Agreements; and
  • discussing the opportunities presented by negotiation and implementation of these agreements.

Participant engagement in these workshops will be encouraged via lively discussions, active question periods and brief group activities.
