Powerful or Just Plain Power-Full? A Power Analysis of Impact and Benefit Agreements in Canada’s North

Abstract:

Negotiated agreements, specifically Impact and Benefit Agreements (IBAs), between resource developers and Aboriginal communities are increasingly seen as viable approaches to assure Aboriginal communities will reap various economic benefits of resource extraction in their traditional territory. Drawing from existing literature about the social context of IBA negotiations, and their content in northern Canada, we apply Lukes’ three dimensions of power to IBAs to show how power is inequitable. We argue that IBAs do provide more direct engagement with industry and a sharing of benefits from resource development that heretofore was not provided in Northern Canada. Even so, IBAs stifle indigenous people from sharing information about benefits negotiated by other indigenous groups and social impacts of development, stifle subsequent objections to the development and its impacts, and stifle visioning about the type and pace of development appropriate for Northern indigenous people.
