National Indigenous Peoples Day – Canada
Published: June 21, 2022
Each year on June 21st, Civeo celebrates National Indigenous Peoples Day, an opportunity for all Canadians to recognize the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and contributions of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
Together with our community partners, Civeo will celebrate by hosting a series of events and activities across each of our Canadian properties. This year’s festivities will include tipi raising ceremonies, drum and dance performances, and blessings. We are also excited to share with our guests a special dinner service featuring a menu of regional Indigenous dishes.
As many of Civeo’s projects in Canada operate in traditional territories, we work closely with Indigenous communities to explore mutually beneficial investment, employment, and business opportunities. Having the ability to share a unique cultural perspective helps us to align our vision, policies, and programs with the aspirations of our partner communities.
Since our inception, Civeo has had the good fortune to work in close, respectful collaboration with First Nations and Indigenous community partners across Western Canada. As a guiding principle, Civeo has incorporated a policy statement recognizing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In doing so, Civeo formalized its commitment to advancing Indigenous human rights through truth and reconciliation.
