Gordon Mohs, Aboriginal Relations Specialist, Eba Engineering, talks about his experience in Aboriginal Relations working for both First Nations communities and for corporate entities at the Expanding Our Knowledge Conference in April 2013. He has many good points and many good tips but emphasized one in particular - First Nations are governments and as such have to manage all the portfolios every government body must manage - the difference being the Administration offices are often very understaffed. He gave the example of one First Nation in BC that had to process 5,000 referrals per year on one project alone. Gordon cautions that project proponents should always keep in mind that their project is just one of many that inundate some First Nations.

Be sure to read his power point presentation for more insight.

Gordon's perspective on Aboriginal relations comes from his unique background.
