Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) manages sites and projects across Canada, on behalf of Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., that are situated within the traditional and treaty territories of various Indigenous, Metis and Inuit nations and communities. CNL recognizes the constitutionally protected rights of Indigenous peoples in Canada, and the importance of the relationship between Indigenous peoples and their traditional lands.

CNL is also committed to implementing Call to Action #92 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report to actively promote and enable economic opportunity for Indigenous Businesses. In relation to this, we acknowledge the expectations among many Indigenous Businesses and communities that they be participants in economic development opportunities in their traditional and treaty territories.

In support of true and lasting reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, including economic reconciliation, CNL aims to develop and strengthen capacity and competencies through building partnerships and collaboration with Indigenous communities and businesses, by helping to reducing barriers to procurement opportunities and enhance economic outcomes for Indigenous peoples.

Moreover, through continued and proactive dialogues with Indigenous Nations, we will collaboratively develop this strategy over time for mutually beneficial outcomes.
