IPS and Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business Progressive Aboriginal Relations

Indigenous Perspectives Society is pleased to be working with the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program to support participating organizations capacity development.

PAR is a certification program that confirms corporate performance in Aboriginal relations at the Bronze, Silver or Gold level. Certified companies promote their level with a PAR logo signaling to communities that they are:

  • good business partners;
  • great places to work and;
  • committed to prosperity in Aboriginal communities

PAR certification provides a high level of assurance to communities because the designation is supported by an independent, third party verification of company reports. The final company level is determined by a jury comprised of Aboriginal business people.

Since the program’s introduction in 2001, PAR remains the premier corporate social responsibility program with an emphasis on Aboriginal relations.

Do you want to have a thriving and diverse workplace that supports growth and well-being?

Indigenous Perspectives Society (IPS) offers Cultural Perspectives Training (CPT) to help governments, organizations, businesses and individuals deepen their understanding and develop actionable ideas to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

Cultural Perspectives Training addresses:

  • The legacy of colonization including inter-generational trauma, privilege and racism, and what it means to an individual or organization wanting to build successful relationships with Indigenous people and communities
  • How to create a Call to Action response plan that turns ideas in to meaningful action

Upon completion, the outcomes that participants can anticipate are:

  • Applying anti-oppressive ideologies and methods into work and daily life
  • Engaging in ongoing reflection on how privilege and stereotypes impact work and relationships
  • Strengthening collaborative working relationships with Indigenous people and communities

To accommodate the learning needs of adults and professionals, Cultural Perspectives Training is offered through a blended learning model that balances in-class sharing, learning, and collaboration with self-guiding online resources, research and off-site action-taking.
