Alberta is privileged to have one of the largest, youngest and fastest-growing Aboriginal populations in Canada. Nearly 250,000 First Nations, Métis and Inuit people play an important role in the social, cultural and economic fabric of the province.
Global Water is committed to working fairly and in partnership with aboriginal communities and businesses to build relationships in the areas in which we work. We believe that aboriginal communities need to be involved in the developments and activities on their traditional lands. The community can grow and improve over time with active participation from the aboriginal community.
Global Water supports Aboriginal economic development by facilitating economic partnerships among Aboriginal communities, industry, governments and other stakeholders.
Global Water recognizes that our business operations in supplying water treatment plants to camps and communities are located in the territories of many Aboriginal communities.
We are committed to working closely with Canada’s Aboriginal peoples and communities to build and maintain effective, long-term and mutually beneficial relationships. To achieve this commitment, we strive for relationships that are based on providing an ongoing solution for their water treatment needs and supporting local communities.
By being able to understand the perspective of Aboriginal’s on issues of mutual interest and by dealing constructively with differing views, we believe we can develop lasting solutions that benefit the project and community.
