Indigenous Relations Policy

Your operations aren’t exclusive of your location and, as such, should include a commitment to the surrounding local and Indigenous communities.

When you work with Strike and our affiliates, we fulfill that commitment on your behalf by forging strong relationships with surrounding bands and their skilled workers.

We pledge to operate ethically and in alignment with our core values to ensure economic inclusion and participation of Indigenous communities by:

  • Treating others as we would wish to be treated;
  • Supporting the communities in which we live and work;
  • Striving to continually improve;
  • Minimizing our impact on the environment.

Strike’s management of health, safety, Indigenous relations, and environmental protection was exceptional.
