Calgary Economic Development Reconciliation Commitment Statement

Calgary Economic Development is committed to advancing Reconciliation with and for Indigenous Peoples, businesses and communities to contribute to an equitable future. We strive to respond to and adopt the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action. 

We collaborate with The City of Calgary and work with the Indigenous Relations Office, to develop actionable items in response to the White Goose Flying Report. We are responsible for listening to, learning from and visiting with Indigenous Peoples, Elders, Traditional Knowledge Keepers and community members. This is in the spirit of fostering reciprocal and mutually beneficial relationships to become a trusted partner to Indigenous communities and businesses. This commitment is only the start of a pathway that is intergenerational. We will identify, amplify and elevate the power of the Indigenous economies in the Treaty 7 Region and Métis Nation Region 3. We commit to holding ourselves accountable through our Reconciliation Action Plan, to support actions and strategies that create tangible benefits for Indigenous Peoples towards economic prosperity.
