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.
