DCC reaches latest Indigenous relations milestone

DCC’s Phase 3 submission for Progressive Aboriginal Relations certification from the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business was accepted in January 2024. Reaching this milestone paves the way for DCC to pursue Bronze certification over the next 16 months.

The Phase 3 submission covered a range of topics—from recruitment and retention of Indigenous employees to leadership engagement with Indigenous communities and procurement involving Indigenous businesses.

The Bronze certification submission will delve deeply into this and other work to show that DCC is initiating, growing and sustaining authentic and mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous peoples.

“DCC has demonstrated that it has put the necessary foundation in place,” said President and CEO Derrick Cheung. “Now, we must demonstrate that we are building on this work for the long term in support of our commitment to reconciliation.”

Once the Bronze submission is complete (planned for April 2025), Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business verifiers will visit DCC and meet with executives and employees to learn more about the organization’s Indigenous relations initiatives.

DCC embarked on the multi-year project to gain Progressive Aboriginal Relations certification in 2021.
