Indigenous Relations & Reconciliation
Over the years, Morrison Hershfield has established positive working relationships with Indigenous communities, clients and partners across Canada. Undertaking sincere and meaningful engagement as part of our projects has led to more informed decision making and created more sustainable solutions that help protect the unique culture of each community, while improving quality of life and supporting economic prosperity.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT TO INDIGENOUS PEOPLES
As articulated in the 2017 United Nations Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and stated in Canada’s Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action 92, Morrison Hershfield acknowledges and recognizes the urgent need to respect and promote the inherent rights of indigenous peoples.
Morrison Hershfield commits to furthering our own knowledge and understanding of unique Indigenous cultures, needs and concerns and to exploring mutually beneficial employment and business opportunities. We will strengthen existing relationships and build new ones as we continue to take positive and concrete steps on our collective journey toward reconciliation.
