The Cree and the Development of Natural Resources

Northern Quebec overflows with mineral resources whose development could generate substantial economic activity. To derive benefits from these resources successfully, businesses, the government and local communities—many of which consist of Aboriginal populations—must collaborate in order for everyone to have an interest in the economic success of development projects. The goal of this Economic Note is to describe this collaboration model, which encourages and facilitates development in Quebec’s north while respecting Aboriginal communities and forming partnerships with them.
