This toolkit for negotiations to develop IBAs focuses primarily on the mining industry in Canada, Latin America, and Australia. However, the knowledge gained can be applied to other industries and regions. It is meant to be a resource for Aboriginal groups negotiating with industry and government.
This report supports FPIC in Canada and promotes understanding of, and progress towards, its successful negotiation. In Canada, FPIC is unique because the rights of Aboriginal peoples are protected under the Canadian Constitution. This ensures rights confirmed through treaties are protected, however, it does not provide clear guidance on consent.
