A leading provider of Indigenous engagement and advisory services supporting Industry and Indigenous communities across Canada.
We help organizations build meaningful partnerships with Indigenous peoples for projects that may involve work on or near Indigenous communities or traditional areas. In addition, we work with Indigenous communities in developing energy and economic development projects to further their sustainability, capacity building and self-sufficiency goals.
Our approach to engagement strives to create lasting, authentic partnerships between Industry and Indigenous peoples. We understand that effective engagement is founded on respect for the legal rights of Indigenous peoples, their traditional practices, language, and decision-making processes. Furthermore, we strive to respect the intent of and adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), and further the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) call to action number 92 for the corporate community.
