First Nations Engagement in the Energy Sector in Western Canada

The report, First Nations Engagement in the Energy Sector in Western Canada by Ken Coates, says that, while the conventional view sees First Nations often protesting resource development, there is another side to the story.

“The second, much less well-known story, captures images of thousands of aboriginal people working in the industry, First Nations’ equity investments in oil and gas fields, hundreds of indigenous-owned service and supply companies, and long but typically successful negotiations of impact and benefits agreements with indigenous companies,” explains Coates. “Canada struggles to reconcile these two apparently contradictory realities.”
