Nutrien has a decades-long track record working with Indigenous Peoples and communities in proximity to our potash operations in Canada. We develop relationships based on mutual respect and trust, a shared understanding of issues, and collaborative problem-solving. In Canada, our efforts are in alignment with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #92 for the corporate sector in Canada.
We have begun expanding this proven approach beyond our potash operations, actively building relationships in other territories in Canada.
We value the perspectives shared with us because we care about the lives and communities we affect. We listen carefully and engage early, often and authentically.
We want our workforce, across all job categories and at all levels, to be representative of Indigenous communities in the operating territory.
We want to create an environment of cultural safety across our company.
We want to diversify our supply chain, while leveraging the shared values of our supplier network to make meaningful, lasting impact.
We want to advance reconciliation and close education and workforce gaps facing Indigenous communities in the industries in which we are a part.
We want to create more inclusive communities where we work and live.
We want to build capacity in our policies, processes and systems, and competency in our people.
