07. Atlantic Resources - Prospecting for the Future

Country Available: Canada, USA

The Atlantic provinces comprise the only region in Canada rich in all four natural resources: oil and gas, forestry, fishing and mining. And aboriginal businesses are partnering with major corporations to benefit both from the jobs provided, and shares in highly lucrative resource royalties. While enhanced economies are a priority for many Atlantic First Nations, some are also concerned about maintaining cultural roots. This segment of Venturing Forth examines the innovative ways aboriginals are successfully balancing business and language while becoming increasingly involved in the natural resource sector.

Locations: Sydney, Cape Breton, Truro, Halifax, Petit de Gras, Whycocomagh-Nova Scotia; Voisey's Bay, Newfoundland.
