SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT & REVITALIZATION FOR FIRST NATIONS
sharing in the spirit of revitalization
Protecting Mother Earth, Responsible Development, and Economic Sharing is everyone’s Responsibility. Thus, Sustainable Development is at the forefront of Canada’s ever evolving relationship with Indigenous communities – now more so than ever.
Dr. Peter Victor guided our consultation process where sustainability is concerned. Consequently, much of his work is honoured in all of our projects: http://www.pvictor.com/MWG/About_the_Book.html
Miles Richardson showed our team how strong and resilient Indigenous Chiefs go about “Revitalizing” their communities. And in doing so, revealed the importance of sovereignty, independence, bridge building and how listening can contribute to successful projects. Today,Haida continues to inspire our team and many of the Chiefs in Northern Ontario too. http://www.haidanation.ca/
Sharing in Canada’s rich resources is all about including Indigenous communities and consulting with Chiefs, Band Council Members and various professionals alike. Treaty Negotiations, Business Development, Mediation and Negotiation tactics, listening to what the communities really want, environmental assessments, and various other technicalities are but a few of our areas of expertise; particularly where mining, forestry, and oil extraction initiatives are concerned.
Remote isolated Indigenous communities are now working towards revitalizing their people one project at a time. SDNR works along side these communities to ensure they are able to meet their financial goals especially if they are in the process of building better schools, houses, or community centres. In 2017, SDNR was able to work with various religious organizations, school boards in Toronto and beyond, as well as other not-for-profit organizations to help raise thousands of dollars for the Children of Georgina Island. To this end, the community was able to follow through on rebuilding their school which was in dire need of repairs.
