We are committed to working with Aboriginal communities within and near our Forest Management Agreement area. The knowledge that Aboriginal peoples share with us through our close working relationships plays a significant role in our Forest Management Plans. We seek to develop our understanding through their input on a regular basis. Our partnerships provide us with the opportunity to work together and maintain sustainable operations.
Our Millsite is on Treaty 8 territory, the Dene/Chipewyan, Cree and Métis peoples’ traditional territory. The majority of our activities take place on public land. Community leaders review operations that occur on Treaty and traditional land through a stringent consultative process. Our Forest Management Plans are finalized with input from Aboriginal communities to ensure proper measures are in place.
Recognizing that all communities are diverse and unique, we strive to align our initiatives with each community’s core values. We focus on strengthening our relationships through consultation, education, employment and economic development opportunities.
