Chair: Michael Fox, Fox High Impact Consulting
The mineral industry and Aboriginal communities continue to explore ways to develop positive relationships that translate into mutually beneficial outcomes ¬ - successful projects and long-term socio-economic development opportunities for communities. Throughout the project cycle, from mineral exploration to mine development and operations, companies and communities have identified a number of strategies for generating partnerships, building relationships and maximizing benefits. In particular, mineral projects can provide the opportunity to be involved in the sector and contribute to the socio-economic development of Aboriginal communities. These opportunities have typically involved training, education, business development, contracting and employment, community development and financial considerations. This session will include presentations and case studies that focus on Aboriginal procurement and joint venture models.
