National Indigenous Peoples Day
Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day, a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
As we celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, we also acknowledge the oppression and discrimination Indigenous Peoples continue to experience. Babcock recognizes it is our responsibility to advance reconciliation and work towards a Canada that is inclusive and equitable for all.
We are committed to collaborating and strengthening our relationships with Indigenous communities and Indigenous business partners across Canada. As Committed members of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business’ Progressive Aboriginal Relations Program, we join them in their mission to “foster sustainable business relations between First Nations, Inuit and Métis people and Canadian Business”.
We believe that by collaborating and working in partnership with the communities where we operate, we succeed together. The inequality in Canada was not created overnight and our solutions will need to be creative, transparent and will take all of us to effect lasting change. Babcock Canada is committed to being a good and fair partner to Indigenous People. Working together to advance reconciliation will help us all build a brighter, more inclusive future for generations to come.
