Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR)

In celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day we are pleased to announce that A&B Rail Services is officially a Committed level member of the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) Program. This is a Corporate Social Responsibility program with an emphasis on Aboriginal Relations. A&B Rail Services’ involvement in PAR indicates our commitment to the continuous improvement of Aboriginal relations and communities via the application of PAR’s four critical drivers throughout our operations.

These drivers include:

  • Leadership Actions: Company leaders support an organizational focus on progressive Aboriginal relations across the company; such actions have an impact in achieving and sustaining positive results.
  • Employment: The company commits resources to achieving equitable representation of Aboriginal persons in the workplace.
  • Business Development: The company commits resources to the development of business relationships with Aboriginal-owned businesses.
  • Community Relationships: The company commits to develop and sustain positive relations with Aboriginal communities, members and stakeholders through engagement and investment.

For Aboriginal communities our commitment provides a high-level of assurance that we are a good partner, a great place to work, and are committed to the prosperity of Aboriginal communities, businesses, and individuals. For A&B Rail Services the PAR certification program confirms our commitment that Aboriginal relations are addressed as part of our overall corporate social responsibility strategy.
