FIRST NATIONS PARTNERS
We recognize and respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples.
We have worked actively over many decades to build collaborative, respectful working relationships with many First Nation groups, and continually work to deepen and strengthen these connections. Consitent with this commitment, TimberWest undertook the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification process. Island Timberlands will now seek similar certification.
The PAR certification crystallizes our commitment to pursuing highly constructive partnerships with First Nation communities. The PAR framework is consistent with our objective to achieve meaningful, enduring collaboration that facilitates First Nation cultural, environmental and economic participation in Mosaic Forest Management activities.
“We highly respect and value our relationships with First Nations across Vancouver Island and the BC Coast.”
Jeff Zweig, President and CEO of Mosaic
