Impact Benefit Agreements

The Taykwa Tagamou Nation is committed to protecting its traditional and treaty territory, and maintains a variety of unique rights that must be considered before any development occurs I this area. Proponents must consider how their project may impact on our community, and how we can work together to ensure that there are positive developments that respect the land and our people. In addition, we can work together to minimize the negative impacts from development.

TTN has successfully negotiated agreements with various project proponents. These bring benefits to the community and bring security to the project proponent. Agreements have been reached in the past with DeBeers Canada on the Victor Diamond Mine, Ontario Power Generation Inc. on the Lower Mattagami projects and past grievances, and Detour Gold on the proposed Detour Gold Mine project.
