the potential for positive and constructive partnerships with
Indigenous Canadians.

For Western Canadians, where the resource economy is the
primary engine of economic growth and prosperity, concern is
often expressed that Aboriginal engagement will interfere with
development. In contrast, there is substantial evidence that
Indigenous peoples are excellent partners in development,
providing the first opportunity in more than a century for a real
sharing of prosperity with Aboriginal communities in Canada.
