We are proud to announce our participation in the First Nations Major Projects Coalition’s (FNMPC’s) newly launched Sustaining Partners Program. ­

This program furthers FNMPC’s ability to advance relationships between its members and the private sector on issues of mutual interest. Through this partnership, our company and other initial program partners will work with the FNMPC and its members to help increase strategies that promote meaningful Indigenous inclusion in major developments, and support Indigenous perspectives concerning ESG investment standards and sustainable business practices generally.

“­The commitments made by Colliers Project Leaders, COWI, Gowling and New Gold Inc. supports our most important work,” says Chief Sharleen Gale, Chair of FNMPC. “It allows FNMPC to create pathways to reconciliation by working closely with a select group of private sector partners who share our vision for meaningful Indigenous inclusion in the economic mainstream of Canada.”
