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.
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.
Coast Funds – Coast Funds is working to align our investment strategies with our values, including recent work to conduct a proxy voting audit. Responsible investment has emerged as one of the many paths organizations can take to advance reconciliation. That includes a proxy voting audit, with the help of SHARE, that helped us develop our own proxy voting guidelines.
SHARE is seeking a Project Lead to coordinate and help lead the Reconciliation and Responsible Investment Initiative, coordinating and assisting with implementation of all project activities including internal and external communications, workshops and events as well as conducting research and contributing to reports. Please submit a cover letter and resume to [email protected] by 5pm (Pacific) on May 31, 2019.
The Montreal Gazette – Although Indigenous peoples have had a visible and growing presence in Canada’s business, political and cultural life, when it comes to Canadians’ investment dollars, Indigenous rights and culture are still too often an afterthought.In its final report, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission called upon all sectors of Canadian society to contribute to reconciliation.
SHARE and CCAB are calling individuals who work in Canada’s investment and finance industry to do a short survey to help us understand where you and your organization are at in your reconciliation journey.
