Indigenous Relations Commitment
Promation takes pride in creating an environment that embraces diversity, recognizing the value of multicultural backgrounds and perspectives. Driving Indigenous content into our business is vital to the future sustainability of our industries and Indigenous communities. We acknowledge, respect and recognize the importance of working with Indigenous communities on the Traditional Territories where we work and live; and we are committed to engaging and fostering meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships with First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities through a four-pillar approach.
- Developing, sustaining and enhancing business relationships with Indigenous-owned companies
- Recruitment, development and enhancement of Indigenous talent throughout employment levels
- Developing and sustaining positive and progressive relationships with Indigenous peoples, communities and businesses through Indigenous engagement and investment
- Driving and helping to sustain positive Indigenous relations across the organization and into the community
Promation is a proud member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) and a 'Committed' Company in the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) Program.
Promation is a dedicated nuclear supplier to Bruce Power, and it is through this strong relationship that we joined the Bruce Power Indigenous Relations Supplier Network (IRSN). The IRSN is a supplier-based network that brings together same-minded organizations looking to build sustainable relationships with indigenous communities and organizations.

Cultural Awareness Training Sessions
Promation is dedicated to acting socially, economically and environmentally responsible for the rights and interests of the Indigenous communities we operate in. We have collaborated with an expert in the field of Indigenous policy, negotiations, conflict resolution and reconciliation, as well as Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, to develop and deliver mandatory cultural awareness training to all Promation employees.
Internal Indigenous Employee Group/PAR Working Group
Promation has an Internal Indigenous Employee Group/PAR Working Group which is open to all employees and management. This group is responsible for driving the focus of progressive and positive Indigenous relations throughout the organization, meeting on a bi-weekly basis to analyze progress in the PAR Program and discuss relevant community initiatives.
Promation adopts the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a reconciliation framework ensuring equitable access to jobs, education and economic benefits in the corporate sector; and we support the CCAB’s mission to foster sustainable business relations between First Nations, Inuit and Métis people and Canadian businesses.
We promote economic reconciliation through facilitating procurement opportunities, partnerships and collaborations between Indigenous-owned businesses and Promation’s industry friends. Most recently, Promation was delighted to partner with Warrior Supplies (Superior Strategies) and Harbour Technologies to address the demand for locally sourced PPE during the COVID-19 pandemic while simultaneously answering the call to source from Indigenous-owned businesses.
If you are an Indigenous-owned business or know of an opportunity where Promation can collaborate and/or partner within the spirit of economic reconciliation, please reach out to Katherine Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Promation is proud to be an inclusive, socially responsible corporation, welcoming ethnic, gender and cultural diversity. One of our major objectives is to build a highly competent workforce while eliminating any educational and employment gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous professionals. We encourage and support a culture of ongoing learning and professional growth, which can include professional development and training programs, seminars and education programs that enhance our employees’ skill/knowledge base or prepare them for future career challenges in our company.
