Indigenous Initiatives

UBC Sauder is proud to be one of the first educational institutions in Canada to join the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business’ Progressive Aboriginal Relations program (PAR).

UBC Sauder Leadership Statement of Commitment to Progressive Aboriginal Relations

Guided by the University of British Columbia’s commitment to the principles of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), and British Columbia’s 2019 implementation of Bill 41-2019: B.C. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act, the UBC Sauder School of Business commits to strengthening its engagement and collaboration with Indigenous peoples.

In particular, UBC Sauder honours and thanks the Coast Salish Peoples of Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil’waututh on whose traditional, ancestral and unceded territories the campuses of the University of British Columbia have the privilege to be situated.

The UBC Sauder School leadership is dedicated to building meaningful, reciprocal and mutually beneficial partnerships with Indigenous Peoples and communities.
