The agreement also provides the communities with an opportunity to participate in the benefits of the Project through business opportunities, employment and training, financial compensation and consultation on environmental matters.

Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel Company, said: "Canada Nickel is fully committed to the responsible development of the Crawford Nickel-Cobalt Sulphide project to deliver NetZero Nickel and Cobalt products. From the very beginning, our approach has been to work with First Nations and local stakeholders as partners in order to create shared value through economic opportunities, while also being respectful and responsible stewards of the natural environment.” said Mark Selby, Chair and CEO of Canada Nickel. “Canada Nickel acknowledges Matachewan and Mattagami First Nations in their commitment to protect and enhance the land and resource-based economy within their Traditional Territory.  We welcome their constructive approach and their support of our efforts to move forward on the development, permitting and construction of the project.

Chief Jason Batisse of Matachewan First Nation is “happy to be forging a strong and mutually beneficial relationship with Canada Nickel on their promising Nickel-Cobalt Project.” Throughout our preliminary discussions, it has become apparent that “Mark is genuinely committed to responsible and sustainable development, and our community appreciates being engaged in the early planning stages of the project” said Chief Chad Boissoneau of Mattagami First Nation.
