Building a Sustainable Future for Indigenous Communities

Learn more

We are a network of Indigenous workers, business owners and leaders.

We want a strong, healthy resource sector in Canada because we benefit from the jobs and contracts it brings. Having a good job means earning a livelihood that can support our families, provide our children with opportunities, and have financial independence. It means moving away from poverty and reliance on income support. We want to work together to build a better, fairer, resource sector that includes Indigenous peoples, so that we can have stronger communities.
