Women and Northern Resource Development



UPDATED: Gender in Research on Northern Resource Development (pdf)

Women’s involvement in northern resource development and decision-making (cross-cutting theme).

Lead researchers:
Suzanne Mills, McMaster University (
Martha Dowsley, Lakehead University (
Emilie Cameron, Carleton University (

This analysis will focus on the topic of gender, which has been a neglected category of research analysis dealing with northern Aboriginal communities and resource development. Research questions fall into three identified themes: economy, governance, and socio-cultural impacts. Linkages are expected to be drawn between these research questions and so, this analysis cuts across the themes in northern resource development.
