Indigenous community support
As a member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, we’re committed to empowering Canadian Indigenous businesses to secure a better future and help deliver transformative outcomes for their communities. We’re building awareness both internally and externally around knowledge about Indigenous Peoples, and we continue to advance economic reconciliation through a diverse supply chain that includes Indigenous companies.
See how we’re collaborating with organizations and communities to provide equitable access to jobs, training and education opportunities for Aboriginal Peoples, and how we’re educating our people on the histories and cultures of Indigenous communities.
