Truth and Reconciliation Report - Call to Action #92
We call upon the corporate sector in Canada to adopt the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework and to apply its principles, norms, and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their lands and resources. This would include, but not be limited to, the following:
In Canada there is a duty to consult and engage with First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Northerns, and the public regarding any Government activity that might adversely impact Indigenous people or their treaty rights, under the Constitution Act. This duty to consult is important for businesses who may need to use Crown land for purposes such a mining, forestry, drilling, etc.
