The Partnership Guide, a critical tool for effective partnerships
To help foster partnerships between Indigenous communities and municipalities in the Eeyou Istchee Baie-James territory and the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region, the Secretariat is launching its new tool: the Partnership Guide. This tool will discuss the contexts surrounding internal and external partnerships in the Eeyou Istchee territory while highlighting the crucial role played by other Indigenous groups in the area. It also focuses on a mutual partnership model that companies can use to develop a fair and mutually-beneficial partnership.
"Through this guide, we hope to provide as much information as possible to highlight the partnership initiatives, contact information and starting points that are so crucial to project development."
