In support of the families and communities affected, TNI Business Services mourns the losses of thousands of children who
died, were abused, and were separated from their families, communities and culture in Canada's residential schools.
TNI Business Services commits to adopt the United Nations Declarations on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and to apply its
principles, norms and standards to corporate policy and core operational activities involving Indigenous peoples and their
lands and resources. This includes, but is not limited to:
Commit to meaningful consultation, building respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed
consent of Indigenous peoples before proceeding with economic development projects.
Ensure that Aboriginal peoples have equitable access to jobs, training, and education opportunities in the corporate
sector, and that Aboriginal communities gain long-term sustainable benefits from economic development projects.
Provide education for management and staff on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of
residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal
rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal-Crown relations. This will require skills-based training in intercultural
competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.
Respect, honesty, courage, love, humility, wisdom and truth
