Today, August 9, is International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, and at Resolute, we are marking the occasion by reiterating our commitment to nurturing constructive working relationships with Indigenous peoples.
We have ongoing consultative relationships and business partnerships with close to 40 Indigenous communities and organizations in Ontario and Quebec, and share a common interest in ensuring that the forests we rely upon continue to provide for the cultural, environmental and economic needs of future generations.
In 2013, Resolute developed an Indigenous Peoples Policy that outlines our commitment to building strong relationships, ensuring Indigenous communities are consulted in decisions impacting their communities, and developing shared economic prosperity.
In keeping with our goal is to provide equitable access to commercial opportunities and to promote the economic participation of Indigenous peoples and businesses in the forest products sector, we also implemented Indigenous Procurement Policy Guidelines to further strengthen our commitment to Indigenous communities across Ontario and Quebec.
For more information on our collaborations with Indigenous Peoples, we invite you to visit our corporate website.
