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.

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.
