The First Nations Major Projects Coalition (FNMPC) is pleased to announce Kiewit as a new member of its Sustaining Partners Program. The program furthers FNMPC’s ability to advance relationships between its members and the private sector on issues of mutual interest. Kiewit along with existing program members Cenovus, CIBC, Colliers Project Leaders, COWI, Gowling WLG, IBI – Arcadis, Pattern Energy, and New Gold Inc., benefit from an exclusive relationship with FNMPC that is focused on advancing progressive Indigenous business initiatives between the partners and FNMPC members.
In working with these companies, FNMPC will further advance strategies that promote meaningful Indigenous inclusion in major developments and articulate Indigenous perspectives concerning ESG investment standards and sustainable business practices generally.
“Kiewit’s involvement supports FNMPC in its efforts to create pathways for reconciliation,” says Chief Sharleen Gale, Chair of FNMPC. “Our Sustaining Partners support our most important work,” Chief Gale added. “By working closely with a select group of private sector organizations who share our vision for meaningful Indigenous inclusion in the economic mainstream of Canada.”
“Kiewit is committed to building respectful, authentic, and long-lasting relationships with Indigenous communities,” said Patrick Lamarre, president of Kiewit Canada Group, Inc. “We are very honoured to join FNMPC’s Sustaining Partners Program and to continue to advance reconciliation with Indigenous communities, their people and unlocking the value of early project involvement. ”
As a Sustaining Partner, Kiewit will participate in FNMPC’s annual conference and benefit from an exclusive working relationship with FNMPC, specifically designed to advance stronger business relationships with Indigenous communities outside of a project-specific environment.
