Indigenous Relations

Aboriginal Landscape

Building and sustaining Indigenous relationships helps to form the foundation of how Canadian Utilities (CU) does business. This is reflected through our longstanding relationships with Indigenous communities and how we engage with these communities every day.

Partnerships that stand the test of time involve respect, trust, understanding and transparency. Each party commits to bringing value to the partnership and continues to negotiate in good faith as the relationship evolves over time. We conduct all of our business in this spirit, striving to maintain positive relationships that contribute to sustainable economic and social development in the communities where we do business.

The diversity of CU businesses encourages a variety of relationships with Indigenous communities. These communities are our customers, business partners, employees and contractors, neighbours who are consulted and engaged and the recipients of CU scholarships and sponsorships.
