GLOBE 2014 Theme: The Aboriginal Advantage

236

Published on

Forging resource development agreements between Aboriginal communities and companies are becoming a business imperative, not an option. Unlocking the potential of electricity, mining, pipeline, forest products and transmission ventures necessitates going far beyond regulatory and legal requirements. Bottom line, Aboriginal interests must be reflected in commercial land-based projects and enterprises. The sessions in this theme focus on Aboriginal-Business Accords that are community-centered, environmentally-sensitive and economically value-additive for major resource development opportunities.

COMMODITIES & CORRIDORS: INTEGRATING ABORIGINAL INTERESTS
One of the more challenging issues resource development proponents face is ensuring that the economic, social and environmental interests of First Nation and Metis communities are integral to any new infrastructure. This session explores go forward agreements that meet both Aboriginal and business expectations.

Transcript of "GLOBE 2014 Theme: The Aboriginal Advantage"

  1. 1. Conference theme and Sessions THE ABORIGINAL ADVANTAGE Forging resource development agreements between Aboriginal communities and companies are becoming a business imperative, not an option. Unlocking the potential of electricity, mining, pipeline, forest products, and transmission ventures necessitates going far beyond regulatory and legal requirements. Bottom line, Aboriginal interests must be reflected in commercial land-based projects and enterprises. The sessions in this theme focus on Aboriginal-Business Accords that are community-centered, environmentally-sensitive, and economically value-additive for major resource development opportunities. COMMODITIES & CORRIDORS: INTEGRATING ABORIGINAL INTERESTS One of the more challenging issues resource development proponents face is ensuring that the economic, social, and environmental interests of First Nation and Metis communities are integral to any new infrastructure. This session explores goforward agreements that meet both Aboriginal and business expectations. Special arrangements will be made to facilitate First Nation B2B meetings with incoming investor delegations. Save $300 Register by March 4, 2014
  2. 2. ABORIGINAL POWER: A NATION-BUILDING OPPORTUNITY Aboriginal Power relates not only to energy generation opportunities on Aboriginal lands, it also relates to the growing power of First Nation, Metis, and Inuit leaders in the corporate sector. Learn from a new generation of First Nation and industry leaders at the forefront of the Aboriginal Power movement which has the potential to fuel economic prosperity. The Aboriginal Advantage: Embracing Project Partnerships Securing the social license to operate in areas where Aboriginal interests exist requires not only a totally different engagement approach, but also a fundamental rethink about doing business with Aboriginal partners. Engage with those who are at the forefront of this new reality. THE CHANGING ARCTIC – MANAGING THE RISKS AND THE OPPORTUNITIES The decline of ice cover in Arctic waters has made shipping along the Arctic Sea Route an economic reality. But it exposes this vulnerable region to potential ecological disasters from transportation mishaps. Member nations of the Arctic Council are working together to manage these risks.
