Register Now! - Impact Benefit Agreements - Some Key Provisions

Don't miss out and register now for our complimentary Willms & Shier Environmental Lawyers Webinar Series!

Our fifth webinar titled: Impact Benefit Agreements - Some Key Provisions will be taking place on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm via Zoom.

Agreements between resource developers and potentially impacted Indigenous communities, commonly called Impact Benefit Agreements (IBAs), are legally required in much of Northern Canada and have become best practice in the rest of Canada.  They can contribute to sustainable socio-economic development for Indigenous peoples, and regulatory certainly for resource developers. The use of IBAs is likely to increase as jurisprudence on the duty to consult develops, and companies focus on ESG.  

Join Julie Abouchar and Carl McKay as they discuss why companies and Indigenous governments negotiate IBAs, and provide an update on changing approaches to key provisions.
