Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR)

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.

If your business has 50 employees or less, we have a PAR program designed especially for you. PAR for Small Business has been tailored to meet the needs of small businesses while providing the roadmap to help your business evolve and participate in a growing Aboriginal business economy – whatever that may look like for you.

Each year, at the Gala Awards Dinner (Vancouver), we recognize excellence in Aboriginal relations and honour those companies that have achieved Bronze, Silver and Gold certification levels.
