"Community Benefits Agreements (CBAs) can be valuable tools for advancing social causes, but not until they’re properly defined and implemented, says a new report by think tank Cardus. The report, Community Benefits Agreements: Toward a Fair, Open, and Inclusive Framework for Canada, looks at the use and abuse of CBAs across the country. Its researchers concluded that CBAs can be a useful way to maximize the impact of Canada’s post-pandemic infrastructure construction boom and economic recovery, but not before the very concept of CBAs themselves are properly defined, and their value proven though measured results."
