We are also grateful for the assistance of Kevin O’Reilly, former Director of Research for CARC in the Yellowknife, Northwest Territories office in converting the documents to a PDF form.
CARC has examined mineral development across the North for many years. Most of this work focused on environmental and socio-economic impacts and benefits, and conformity with law and policy. The NMP envisioned a more proactive approach to linking sustainability and mining across the North. In particular, the NMP has taken aim at the manner in which current policies; regulation and monitoring practices reflect the principles of sustainability. As well, CARC examined the challenges and opportunities that 'impact and benefits agreements' bring to Aboriginal governments.
Viewers are free to download the documents for their use we ask that acknowledgment be given to CARC and request a donation be made to CARC noting the Northern Minerals Program. For those requiring a large number for educational purposes please contact the Executive Director or Jan Glyde in donor support for a data release permission. The page numbering and format may differ slightly from the hard copy publications. The following is a list of the NMP Working Papers.
These papers are 'works in progress'; much of the research continues. While we believe that the findings offer important opportunities for reform, the views and opinions presented are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of CARC.
