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.
