  3. 3. Strategic Partnerships Initiative (SPI) With 13 partnering federal departments and agencies, SPI is an innovative, Horizontal program intended to coordinate federal efforts with respect to supporting Aboriginal participation in complex economic opportunities – particularly in the natural resource sectors. Focused on supporting community readiness, the program provides a mechanism for federal partners to collectively identify opportunities for investment, assess and make project approvals, leverage non-federal sources of funding, monitor progress and report on outcomes. Since its launch in 2010, SPI has proven to be a catalyst for organizing Government departments to increase Aboriginal participation in some of the largest resource development opportunities across Canada, including the Ring of Fire in Northern Ontario and the Lower Churchill Hydroelectric Project in Atlantic Canada. In the BC Region: SPI is being invested in Tourism, Mining, Shipbuilding, Liquefied Natural Gas.
  4. 4. SPI Key Priorities 2013-2014 With significant investments in major projects anticipated in the next 10 years, SPI will focus increasingly on supporting community readiness activities so that communities are better prepared to engage with partners and participate fully in these developments. To further support a comprehensive approach to addressing Aboriginal participation in large resource developments, we are currently seeking to expand SPI to include additional signatories (Health Canada and Environment Canada). We are also leading discussions with federal partners, including Treasury Board, to establish a process that will enable a single window approach for multiple departments to provide funding to a recipient using the SPI umbrella terms and conditions. Products are being developed in order to promote accomplishments to date, including an annual report and success stories. In addition, we will be working with regions and OGD partners to identify further communications opportunities to highlight our successes.
  5. 5. SPI Governance Unlike other government programs, SPI investments involve multiple federal partners in the decision making process. In addition, investments are often multi-year in order to enable longer term planning and certainty for Aboriginal communities pursuing complex economic opportunities. Investments are prioritized by a DG level inter-departmental committee which includes representation from the following departments: – – – – Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada Human Resources and Skills Development Canada Natural Resources Canada Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency The Committee also includes a representative from the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board. Final decisions on funding are made by the Federal Coordination Committee on Aboriginal Economic Development – a committee of Assistant Deputy Ministers representing departments and agencies with a mandate in Aboriginal economic development.
