Reducing Transaction Costs on Infrastructure Corridor Projects in Canada

Watch Now

Infrastructure corridors are among the most complicated undertakings in Canada, requiring transactions related to everything from property rights to maintenance to finance. One way to reduce these transaction costs is by making Indigenous stakeholders partners, not just participants in negotiations. In this presentation, we will examine the barriers and costs for greater Indigenous participation in and ownership of infrastructure corridor projects.

Join author André Le Dressay for this discussion of how transaction costs in large infrastructure projects can be reduced, ensuring fiscal and economic benefits generated from them are available to Indigenous communities as well as other Canadians and governments.
