PAR is a CCAB certification program that confirms corporate performance in Indigenous relations. The program supports participants’ efforts towards progressive improvement and commitment to prosperity in Indigenous communities and with Indigenous businesses. CCAB member companies build a framework that enables them to achieve certification in Indigenous relations at the bronze, silver, or gold level.  As a program that has built a reputation over 20 years, PAR is the premier corporate social responsibility program, providing a high level of assurance through an independent, third-party verification process of company reports on measurable outcomes and initiatives in four performance areas: Leadership Actions, Employment, Business Development, and Community Relationships. These verified reports are then reviewed by an independent jury of Indigenous business leaders who assign the final certification level.
