The Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB) has recognized CN for its commitment to working with Aboriginal communities.

The Class I earned the council's "Progressive Aboriginal Relations" certification, which signals that a company is a good business partner for Aboriginal communities and is committed to their prosperity, CN officials said in a press release.

CN operates within or adjacent to nearly 200 reserves of more than 110 First Nations and Metis territories.

"CN, as a business operating across Canada, is truly moving toward addressing the new economic reconciliation that is supporting an Aboriginal business renaissance in Canada today," said CCAB President and Chief Executive Officer JP Gladu.

In 2013, CN adopted its "Aboriginal Vision," which is a commitment to develop "respectful, sustainable and mutually beneficial" relationships with Aboriginal people, according to the railroad's website. In addition, CN made a commitment to be recognized by key stakeholders as having a sound approach to engaging Aboriginal communities.
