Consultation is critical in the engagement between industry and Indigenous Peoples. An important aspect to industry developing long-term relationships with Indigenous communities is ensuring Indigenous participation in the consultation process, which can be supported through consultation capacity funding. Community investment—investments in health, sports and recreation, education, culture and social development–is one way companies can help enable thriving, vibrant communities where workers and families live.
