Our Sustainability Pillars

Our three pillars of sustainability guide our approach to ESG initiatives, while illustrating the value these activities bring to our organization and the communities and economies in which we operate.

  • Vision
  • Mission

A national network of thriving communities built on equity, accessibility, diversity and sustainability for all.

To provide safe, equitable and green opportunities and spaces where we work and live by:

  • Operating a national network of land-based education, training and employment opportunities for Indigenous Youth in a culturally and spiritually supportive space;
  • Influencing elected officials to advocate for policies and legislations that directly support and fund initiatives benefiting Indigenous Youth, communities and environments;
  • Establishing key partnerships with organizations that understand the importance of protecting the biodiversity of our ecosystem;
  • Promoting and encouraging health, wellness and safety;
  • Employing a diverse workforce that is reflective of where we work and live; and
  • Seeking opportunities to support at-risk children and youth as well as military families and organizations.
