Long-term Opportunity and Value Into the Communities

Indigenous Philosophy

Through our extensive consultations with indigenous communities, we understand the importance of bringing long-term opportunity and value into the communities in which we operate.

CBO achieves this objective by:

  • Creating careers rather than just jobs.
  • Focusing on the promotion and creation of skills and trades that will benefit the community.
  • Coordinating with the local educational facilities to include local members as beneficiaries.
  • Recognizing and accommodating any cultural sensitivities related to traditional seasonal activities.
