Indigenous Trusts are invited to join SHARE and NATOA in Victoria, BC for this Reconciliation and Responsible Investment Initiative workshop, featuring an introductory session to responsible investment, put responsible investment into practice and how to take the next steps.
SHARE and Coast Funds today announced new shareholder proxy voting guidelines that advocate for the rights of Indigenous Peoples. Coast Funds is an Indigenous-led conservation finance organization created by First Nations, the governments of British Columbia and Canada, and private foundations as part of the 2006 Great Bear Rainforest agreements.
Today is National Indigenous Peoples Day, to recognize and celebrate the ongoing history, diverse cultures and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to our nation and to the world. To provide some examples of how reconciliation is relevant for individuals and organizations in the investment and financial ecosystem, we offer some of the work SHARE is doing – in our programs as well as internally.
