Impact Benefit Agreements and other Economic Agreements

We bring strategic expertise to ensure that not only are our clients’ Aboriginal rights and title protected, but they benefit in receiving their fair share of the financial and other rewards as a result of development on their land and territory, where they have consented to the project. We work with our clients to support their goals of ensuring that development occurs in an environmentally sustainable manner, and in a way that is beneficial to and culturally appropriate for their Nation. We will negotiate and work to implement agreements at all stages, from initial exploratory sessions to memorandums of understanding, pre-development agreements, impact benefit agreements and other agreements that may be required during the implementation phase.
