June 25, 2024

Alectra has become a member of the Canadian Council for Indigenous Business (CCIB) and is committed to the Progressive Aboriginal Relations™ (PAR) Certification program. By joining a diverse group of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous companies across Canada, Alectra is dedicated to fostering meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities and promoting economic reconciliation.

“We are honoured to join CCIB and embark on our journey towards Progressive Aboriginal Relations Certification,” said Brian Bentz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Alectra. “This commitment aligns with our values of equity, diversity and inclusion and demonstrates our dedication to creating positive change and fostering sustainable relationships with Indigenous peoples.”

The PAR program is designed to help companies measure and improve their performance in Indigenous relations. By participating in this program, Alectra aims to enhance its understanding and practices in four key areas: Leadership Actions, Employment, Business Development, and Community Relationships. Achieving this designation will take several years of dedicated effort and continuous improvement in our relationships with Indigenous communities.
