“The Forum aimed to improve understanding of the issues related to Aboriginal education, as they apply to HR management in mining and mineral exploration, and to the economic development of Aboriginal communities (First Nations, Métis and Inuit).”
“The goal of this research is to increase understanding among both the mining industry and Aboriginal groups of how to achieve “win-win” employment outcomes when negotiating and implementing the HR components of Aboriginal community/industry partnership agreements. This study looks specifically at the HR and training aspects of IBAs and IBA-like agreements, in order to identify successful practices — from the perspectives of both industry and Aboriginal communities.”
“The guide is a user-friendly tool for Aboriginal organizations interested in learning more about mining employment, as well as for those with a specific focus on developing mining-related training and employment opportunities for their communities.”
"The purpose of this paper is to highlight background information on the opportunities and challenges associated with Aboriginal participation in major resource development. The focus is on major resource projects in energy (oil, gas and hydro) and mining sectors in Canada.
"In this article, I argue that labor researchers in North America need to engage more thoroughly with Indigenous studies if they hope to advance social and environmental justice. First, I suggest that researchers approach Aboriginal peoples’ relationships to the environment by supporting Aboriginal rights to lands and resources. Second, and related to this point, I raise the issue of the need for Aboriginal-controlled development in northern Aboriginal communities.
"The article discusses development of partnerships by mining companies with indigenous people. Several factors have led the international mining sector to develop partnerships with indigenous people. Some of them include growth in acceptance of the Equator Principles, a benchmark for determining risk in project financing, and development of the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative to increase the commitment of business enterprises to human rights, labor standards and anti-corruption.
