August 30, 2021 – The Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business announced several Canadian corporations will be recognized at the Business Recovery Forum—September 22—for achieving certification in Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR).
Among them, several players in the electrical sector, including:
“We recognize the value that Indigenous participation in the economy and workforce brings to Ontario and beyond,” said Heather Ferguson, OPG. “As we move forward, we do so with a focus on continuous improvement and tangible outcomes that demonstrate reconciliation. We are grateful to the CCAB for recognizing our progress.”
“Each year we are proud to announce a growing number of companies committed to creating positive, meaningful relationships with Indigenous businesses and communities,” said Tabatha Bull, CCAB president & CEO. “I admire the dedication these companies have demonstrated to furthering economic growth and opportunities with Indigenous business.”
PAR is a CCAB certification program that confirms corporate performance in Indigenous relations. Using an online management and reporting tool, the program supports participants’ efforts towards progressive improvement and commitment to prosperity in Indigenous communities.
