Grant Pauls is a member of the Tahltan Nation of North-Western British Columbia. Over the past five years, Grant has channeled his skill into the specialized field of mediation and negotiations. His strong background working in economic development through First Nations organizations gives his negotiation tactics strength and foundation. Grant’s education from the Yukon College in Whitehorse and Capilano College / UBC’s Business Administration program reinforces his practical and field knowledge of business and management. The inspiration to specialize in this area, and create services specifically for mining companies with planned developments on Indigenous lands, comes in response to several recent landmark court cases in which decisions pronounce the end of one era of business and the beginning of mutually beneficial partnerships between the corporations and the First Nations people.
Grant’s services inevitably become an integral part of any business venture desiring the implementation of an up-to-date negotiation strategy. The focus is on building a strong working relationship that is designed about the current changing climate concerning Aboriginal Rights Entitlements.Integrity and empowerment are the keys to moving a new working relationship out of Negotiations and agreements. Grant emphasizes the importance of peaceful relations lasting beyond the primary stages of development. Bringing with him his unique passion and insightful views, Grant sets the stage for exactly these kinds of new working relationships.
