Call To Action:

92. 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.
