At Stantec, we’re always looking for ways to build stronger connections with communities, and that includes the way we work with Indigenous Peoples.
Meaningful engagement with Indigenous Peoples and businesses, and commitment to the prosperity of Indigenous communities, is essential to our business objectives and our promise to design with community in mind.
It’s important that our approach to Indigenous Relations—whether recruiting Indigenous candidates, supporting their career growth, or working alongside Indigenous communities and businesses—considers the histories, cultures, and values of Indigenous Peoples.
Our ApproachStantec’s Indigenous Relations approach is made up of four pillars that integrate Stantec’s core values with the desired outcomes of the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program.
Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR)We want to respond effectively to the hopes and needs of Indigenous Peoples. To achieve that, we are working toward earning Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification through the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB). PAR provides a framework for organizations to develop an Indigenous Relations approach that is effective, sustainable, and successful. Read More
Indigenous Business PartnershipsWe're committed to creating opportunities through working in partnership with Indigenous Peoples and businesses. While growing our network in the Indigenous business community, we're providing tangible training, employment, and contracting opportunities for Indigenous Peoples and businesses. This network also provides Stantec with new business partnerships and opportunities which, in turn, diversify the scope of our Canadian portfolio. Read More
Community EngagementStantec has grown though a model of community-centered project delivery focused on working where we live. We are strengthening our connections to Indigenous communities and finding new ways to make meaningful contributions by supporting local initiatives and collaborating with local and national Indigenous organizations.
