(SLR) is an international environmental consultancy that provides services across six industry sectors – Energy, Industry, Infrastructure, Mining & Minerals, Built Environment, and Power. In Canada, we have 18 offices with over 450 employees providing technical services in the areas of engineering, environmental management, planning and approval, environmental specialist services, advisory services, and land and water. SLR’s specialists offer practical guidance on strategic and site-specific environmental and sustainability issues to a diverse base of Indigenous communities, businesses, regulatory bodies, and governmental clients.
SLR is committed to supporting and enhancing the communities in which we live and work and fulfilling these commitments means cultivating respectful and meaningful business-oriented relationships with Indigenous Peoples, communities, and organizations. SLR has developed an Indigenous Relations Policy for our Canadian business in which we endeavour to:
Develop and deliver training and tools to support continued learning for all SLR
employees with respect to the rights, history, heritage, cultures and diverse perspectives of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada, and our role in advancing reconciliation.
Increase the range of opportunities for Indigenous-owned businesses in providing
services to our clients.
Contribute to skills training and knowledge sharing through collaboration with Indigenous communities, educational institutions, and charitable organizations.
Support the efforts of our clients, as well as related business and professional
organizations, in fostering respectful and meaningful business-oriented relationships with Indigenous Peoples.
When engaged in consultation and engagement activities, strive for open, honest, and transparent dialogue so Indigenous leaders and their communities have the information needed to inform and shape their decision-making processes.
Uphold at all times a high standard of ethical behavior consistent with our Global
Business Conduct Policy.
SLR has joined the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business to help do our part in addressing the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #92. We are committed to learning, growth, and reconciliation as a team and a business.
