Indigenous Procurement Policy

True reconciliation stems from the action your words compel you to do. Our Indigenous procurement policy is the guiding principle from which we work.

Aligned with one of our 6 guiding pillars, Integrated Sustainability actively engages and collaborates with Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit Peoples to manage project impacts and identify opportunities that create shared value. Our solutions aim to support the development of local communities and enable Indigenous businesses to thrive.

Building relationships with Indigenous individuals and companies is one way in which Integrated Sustainability strives to respect and support Indigenous Peoples of Canada. We prioritize the engagement of local people and resources with each project and continue to build our network of Indigenous companies and contractors to support our infrastructure development and consulting projects.

Procurement Guiding Principles
  • We actively seek to engage Indigenous individuals and companies as part of a sustained commitment to relationship building and partnership development.
  • If a pre-qualified, local, Indigenous company is available to support a project, they will be invited to bid for applicable work.
  • Awarded contracts must meet Integrated Sustainability’s and our clients’ qualification standards with respect to health, safety, technical, and performance requirements.
  • Awarded contracts are at market competitive prices.
  • Procurement opportunities may include competitive bid or sole source work.

Successful partnerships are built on mutual respect, understanding, and shared value. Integrated Sustainability is committed to building trust and sustainable relationships with those we work with. Visit our Indigenous services page to find out more.
