Impact and Benefit Agreements: Moose Cree First Nation

Lecture | July 5 | 1-2:30 p.m. | 201 Haviland Hall

Dr. Arielle Dylan, St. Thomas University

Social Welfare, School of

The Anglo-Canadian common law doctrine of the duty to consult and accommodate First Nations has created a new avenue for many First Nation communities to enter economic partnerships with industrial proponents. Oftentimes formalized through Impact and Benefit Agreements (IBAs), these negotiations have the power to dramatically change the social and economic landscape of First Nations.

Come hear Dr. Arielle Dylan’s recent findings on how an IBA between an Aboriginal group in Northern Ontario and an international mining company is impacting community wellness. Framing her research in the context of Canada’s history of colonialism and imperialism with First Peoples, Dr. Dylan aims to uncover how IBAs work in practice as well as to give voice to the communities affected socially, politically and collectively by the agreements.
