A&A Trading is committed to our role in Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples. We believe meaningful engagement and on-the-ground action. Our actions are guided by the advice of our Indigenous friends, colleagues and leaders, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.
A&A Trading has a long history of supporting First Nations with their forestry programs. We are proud of these partnerships and the fact that our Indigenous partners have become some of the forest industry’s most successful and progressive leaders. We believe in collaborating to determine how to create more value rather than conventional approaches to service provision.
Being proactively engaged as participants in the development of some of the first Indigenous-led land governance systems in BC, we have noticed positive and promising trends; areas where we enjoy the most operational clarity and stability are part of the Territories where Indigenous Nations have reassumed a leadership role.
We believe that all of us have a part to play in Reconciliation. We are working collaboratively to make it happen today—grounded in friendship, respect, and insight from our most cherished relationships.
