Alliance is committed to having strong working relationships with Indigenous communities and organizations in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. These relationships are rooted in respect and manifested in many ways, including regular communication with community members, investing in Indigenous communities and initiatives, and creating opportunity for Indigenous youth through financial awards for post-secondary education.
Alliance values its mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous communities. We believe that the Indigenous people have a great deal of knowledge to share. We also believe that Indigenous communities and their industry can benefit from the economic opportunities that are created through responsible energy development.
Alliance Pipeline is firmly committed to maintaining positive relations with Indigenous communities and promoting continued partnerships, based on our Indigenous Relations Value Statement:
A. Value Statement:
Alliance envisions mutually beneficial interactions with Canada’s Indigenous People that foster both parties’ respective accountabilities and interests.
B. Guiding Principles:
Alliance believes it can achieve this vision through the recognition of Indigenous Rights; through meaningful and ongoing dialogue with Indigenous Communities; and, through the mutual acceptance of responsibility.
Alliance believes establishing and maintaining productive and positive relationships with Canada’s Indigenous People is one of many key components of its long-term business strategy and responsible growth.
Alliance Pipeline recognizes the existence of Indigenous rights and understands that Indigenous people come from diverse communities with distinct values, customs, traditions and governance structures. Alliance’s policy will be flexible to acknowledge the legal and socio-economic realities of Indigenous communities.
