“CCAR provides me with insight into issues that are central to my role at PTI Group 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.”

—Stephen Crocker, Director, Aboriginal Relations, PTI Group
