Call to Action # 92 Business and Reconciliation

We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following: i. Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before proceeding with economic development projects. ii. Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate sector, and that Aboriginal communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects. iii. Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal–Crown relations. This will require skills based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.

Very informative

Elijah Ankomah

I'm an international student, although I was aware of some of the issues and terrors the indigenous peoples had and still are acing I did not know it was to this extent. Being black myself I was able to sympathize even more, especially knowing how ignorance can really hurt others. Thank you and I will be sure to carry what was thought with me in life!!

I know far too many people who should complete this training. I live in an area where there are several First Nations and not enough education.

highly educational and well organized and presented

I thought the title is subtle and allowed me to think I knew some of the history before getting a reality check

Donald Brosseau

It delivers the right message, it will take us all working together, understanding the past in its absolute horrifying truth, owning all the wrongs of the past and loudly and shamefully, so we remember in moving forward to never repeat them. Thank you for this education.
