Canadian Mining Journal Features Torys Quarterly Article

January 26, 2018

The Q1 Torys Quarterly piece on relationship building with Indigenous Peoples has received coverage in a key industry publication.

The Canadian Mining Journal  has published a small promotional story for the Torys Quarterly article “Relationship Building with Indigenous Peoples – A Beneficial Strategy for Project Proponents and Operators.” This article was authored by The Hon. Frank Iacobucci, Michael Fortier, Valerie Helbronner and John Terry

The publication cherry picked the key points of the article which discussed how project proponents should follow a defined a strategy in order to succeed. The important points are:

  1. The relationships are based on mutual respect and trust, the importance of which cannot be overstated. Mutual respect and trust built on positive, ongoing and mutual conduct.
  2. Each party understands the other’s interests over the short, medium and long term and is willing to accommodate, at least, some of the other party’s interests.
  3. The parties are committed to a long-term relationship (as opposed to a transactional or short-term approach). Part of this commitment is often due to aligning long-term interests, including financial ones. 

This article forms part of the Q1 Torys Quarterly, which this quarter includes outlook pieces on the year ahead and insights on dealmaking, governance, litigation, projects and more
