CN honored for aboriginal relations


The Alberta Chamber of Commerce has recognized CN for excellence in aboriginal relations.

The Class I received the chamber's Alberta Business Award of Distinction in the Indigenous Relations—Best Practices category. The award was presented last week at the chamber's annual Alberta Business Awards of Distinction event in Edmonton, Alberta, according to a CN press release.

CN operates within or adjacent to nearly 200 different reserve lands of more than 110 First Nationals and some Metis territories in eight provinces.

"This award is a clear recognition of CN's commitment to Aboriginal Relations and our Aboriginal Vision adopted in 2013," said Melanie Allaire, lead of the Aboriginal Affairs team at CN. "CN remains committed to proactively developing respectful and mutually-beneficial relationships with all Aboriginal people across Alberta and Canada."

The Alberta Business Awards of Distinction recognize businesses or organizations that demonstrate outstanding achievement and contribution to their community while developing business acumen and management practices to ensure long-term stability.
