Negotiations & Aboriginal Relations

It is increasingly known and accepted that consulting with Aboriginal groups at the earliest stages of development projects to ensure their interests are addressed, is not only smart and effective business practice, but for government agencies, required by law. This “legal duty to consult” is needed when established or potential Aboriginal and Treaty rights may be impacted by projects such as natural resource development activity.

DPRA has been engaged in effective negotiation and consultation processes with Aboriginal groups for over 40 years, in activities such as economic development, capacity building, conflict resolution, facilitation, stakeholder consultation, environmental assessment and management, environmental communications, and negotiations.

We provide negotiation advisors and strategists, do research around negotiations, and carry out negotiation training.
