Description

A Stake in the Future is a comprehensive study of the Whitehorse Mining Initiative, which was first conceived by the leaders in the Canadian mining industry. The goal was to revitalize the mining industry, attract new investment and forge an alliance with major stakeholders such as government, environmental groups, First Nations, the mining industry, and labour. The book examines the political, cultural, and policy issues involved in developing a new consenus-based approach to resolving land and resource use disputes with particular focus on a national multi-stakeholder initiative in the mineral sector.
