KIA and Agnico Eagle sign IIBA
The Kivalliq Inuit Association (KIA) and Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSE: AEM) have signed an Inuit Impact and Benefit Agreement (IIBA) for the Whale Tail Project located 50 km northwest of the Meadowbank mine. An official signing ceremony was held June 15 in Baker Lake with representatives from KIA and Agnico Eagle’s senior management team, along with the community of Baker Lake. 

The Whale Tail IIBA addresses protection of Inuit values, culture and language and provides for enhanced access by Inuit to employment, training and business opportunities. The IIBA contains implementation and monitoring measures that will ensure these goals are achieved. 
“Our decision to invest in the Whale Tail and Meliadine projects solidifies Agnico Eagle’s commitment to Nunavut as it will be a main contributor to this next phase of growth for the Company,” said Ammar AlJoundi, President, Agnico Eagle. “We are proud to partner with KIA in our continued growth in Nunavut and in developing strong, sustainable communities in the Kivalliq Region. Only through combined partnership efforts will we achieve success and including our vision of seeing mines in Nunavut being operated and managed by Inuit.”
