SHARE works with Indigenous and non-Indigenous investors to align capital with the principles of reconciliation and to amplify investor voices in support of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action 92 addressed to the business community.

Our work is grounded in the principles of reconciliation and our commitment to shifting the corporate and investment sectors so that they function in a manner that is consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
