IBA Community Toolkit
The IBA Community Toolkit is a free resource for First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities in Canada considering impact and benefit agreements, specifically those with mining companies. While the Toolkit focuses primarily on the mining industry, many of the issues and processes addressed in the Toolkit are relevant to the making of agreements in other industry sectors and contexts, including protected areas, oil and gas, hydro and forestry.
The goal of the Toolkit is to help communities, negotiators and consultants achieve positive agreements for aboriginal communities.
With the help of several IBA experts, The Gordon Foundation and The Firelight Group teamed up with author Ginger Gibson to update the Toolkit given the recent changes in legislation and court decisions which may impact negotiations. The new Toolkit is now available for order.
