2019 Vancouver Progressive Aboriginal Relations Luncheon

By | | No Comments

The 2019 Progressive Aboriginal Relations Luncheon in Vancouver brings together companies that are interested in the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program. Meet businesses that are committed to promoting and developing partnerships with and investing in Aboriginal businesses and communities and learn about how your company can become a PAR-committed company.

Moving Capital, Shifting Power

CCAB and the Shareholder Association for Research and Education (SHARE) recently partnered to identify opportunities for investment corporations to contribute to economic reconciliation in Canada. Their research findings revealed that the majority of firms are not currently integrating Indigenous targets into their policies, investment practices or decision-making in a way that would positively impact Indigenous Peoples and businesses. During the luncheon, join CCAB and SHARE for the launch of our “Moving Capital – Shifting Power” research and panel discussion on the importance of integrating Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) into Indigenous engagement and investment strategies for the finance industry.
