What Is A Impact Benefit Agreement

Given their great socio-economic importance, IBAs are arguably quasi-legislative in both scope and scope. The monolithic impact of a large project on local communities is similar to that of a public institution, and a corresponding level of accountability and transparency is warranted. Registered charities interested in hosting an IBA Community Toolkit workshop for First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities in Canada should contact the Gordon Foundation to arrange a trained workshop facilitator and free toolkits. These benefits have evolved and include not only employment and development opportunities for local businesses, but also royalties and direct payments. In addition, IBAs are seen by governments as evidence that Aboriginal and treaty rights have been taken into account. In the future, the popularity and use of IBAs in resource development activities may be affected by new laws requiring the disclosure of IBA payments. The general part of the IBA document is non-negotiable and frames the general objectives of the agreement. This is the organisation of cooperation between the parties and the areas included. Lack of scruples can also be used to remove blatant individual clauses from agreements, even in situations where there is relative parity of bargaining power. In Canadian law, this application of the doctrine was limited to the removal of “limitation of liability clauses” that completely prevent the parties from bringing legal proceedings.[106] Contrary to the restrictive application of the doctrine of lack of scruples in Canadian jurisprudence, it is a standard form of discharge under U.S. law to remove individual clauses for reasons of lack of scruples.[107] The content of Nunavut IBAs is quasi-legislative, both in the scope of their provisions and in the scope of their impact. Therefore, although IBAs are technically considered to be private law contracts, they may normatively belong to the category of public law, where transparency and accountability are fundamental principles.

In addition to their quasi-legislative socio-economic implications, the role of IBAs in consultation favours the characterisation of IBAs as instruments of public law and not private law. Therefore, transparency can be a mechanism for achieving a level of public accountability appropriate to public law […].
