Bird Indigenous Engagement Policy
Bird strives to be a positive contributor to the overall well-being of Indigenous Peoples and groups with whom Bird interacts across Canada, and demonstrates this by respecting and promoting the rights of Indigenous peoples across our operations.
Bird is committed to the following:
- Building respectful relationships and promoting open communications and cultural awareness as fundamental to Bird’s business success and applying these same principles in its work that impacts Indigenous communities.
- Being proactive in employing a qualified workforce that strives to be representative of the Indigenous communities in which it works.
- Seeking to increase business opportunities for its Indigenous partners and to build capacity in the Indigenous business community.
- Investing in community programs that support Indigenous cultural awareness, skills development and business capacity through in-kind and financial contributions.
Bird has developed and implemented an Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training Program to better educate its management and employees and enable them to deliver on Bird’s commitment to its Indigenous Relations Policy, strategies and plans. Bird management is committed to effectively implement, monitor and report on the Indigenous Engagement Policy.
