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 signalling to communities that they are:

  • good business partners

  • great places to work

  • committed to prosperity in Aboriginal communities

PAR’s certification program provides a high level of assurance to communities because the designation is supported by independent and 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.
