We recognize the profound relationships that Indigenous people have with the land on which we operate.
We understand that the success of our business is directly tied to the support of our neighbours, many of whom are Indigenous. We take the time to meet and get to know neighboring Indigenous and Tribal communities so we can learn, understand, and respond to concerns as well as provide information about our operations, projects and economic benefits associated with them. Our Indigenous and Tribal Relations Policy governs how we build mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous communities.
At Pembina, we recognize and respect:
- That there are many distinct Indigenous communities and Tribes with unique languages, cultures, traditions, rights, priorities, and protocols.
- The important role that Indigenous and Tribal people and communities play in the evolution of our Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) standards.
- The spirit and intent of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), within the context of the Canadian Constitution, existing laws and jurisprudence on Indigenous and treaty rights.
- The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a framework for reconciliation.
- That all Canadians, including private industry and government, must play a role in advancing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s (TRC) Calls to Action and, in particular, Call to Action Number 92, Business and Reconciliation.
