dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to examine the relationships between mining companies and Aboriginal communities in the Canadian Arctic through their shared connection to the natural environment. The focal point of this investigation are the mitigation strategies employed by mining companies for reducing adverse effects to terrestrial wildlife, and the associated traditional harvesting practices of local native communities. This study investigates the roles of both parties in direct relation to effective wildlife management, socio-economic benefits and maintaining traditional lifestyles, as well as the potential for greater sustainable development. As such, it is expected that the improved management of environmental impacts can lead to more positive experiences for communities with local mining projects. Moreover, with a positive relationship, it is expected that both parties would derive greater benefits and more successful sustainable development. With a narrow focus on terrestrial wildlife species and traditional harvesting, this study is able to examine a critical component of the relationship between mining companies and communities, and devise management recommendations for future development.en_US
