Evaluation of the program True North Treasure Initiative – Labrador Trough

In May 2018, Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Canada provided funding to Thierry Rodon and Steeve Jacob to conduct an evaluation of the Northern Treasures Initiatives Program. This program supports Aboriginal participation in key sectors of the Canadian economy, such as agriculture, fisheries, forestry, mining and energy. In Quebec, a specific initiative has been developed to encourage Aboriginal participation in northern development, particularly in major mining projects related to the Labrador Trough.
