Council on Corporate Aboriginal Relations
The Council on Corporate Aboriginal Relations (CCAR) is a networking council within the Northern and Aboriginal Policy knowledge area.
The Council on Corporate Aboriginal Relations (CCAR) helps senior-level representatives from public, private, and Aboriginal organizations build and leverage their relationships to better address their objectives. It provides a forum where Canada’s foremost leaders in Aboriginal relations can candidly share their experiences, as well as next and best practices, in a trusted environment.
Membership is composed of corporate-Aboriginal thought leaders and senior representatives from the private and public sectors as well as from Aboriginal organizations—all with a vested interest in building trusted relationships as a foundation for pursuing mutually beneficial outcomes and partnerships.
- To significantly contribute to the mutual pursuit of dynamic, collaborative, fair and constructive Corporate-Aboriginal relations and interests in Canada.
- To build trusted relationships as a basis for mutually beneficial partnerships.
“CCAR provides me with insight into issues that are central to my role at William Scotsman that would not otherwise be easily accessible. The intimate and trusted environment of the meetings allows us to have candid discussions and share experiences. Membership in the Council and the networking opportunities with my peers have helped to shape my thinking around our own Aboriginal relations strategies and programs.”
