Why They Matter in Project and Corporate Finance
How are Indigenous rights in Canada increasingly affecting existing infrastructure and shaping new infrastructure needs? How can projects be built and how can corporate activities in the infrastructure and resource development sectors be conducted? If such considerations are not correctly assessed and addressed, they can result in delayed or even cancelled projects, increased costs, loss of revenues, and reputational risk. All could potentially have credit consequences for the companies that develop the projects or conduct activities that have materially negative ESG consequences unless the risks are properly assessed upfront and managed proactively.
