Indigenous Economic Assessment Report of Alberta
ATB Financial and MNP have partnered to undertake a study of the Indigenous economy in Alberta to highlight the significant economic contributions of Indigenous Peoples. We undertook this project because ATB and MNP feel that education, awareness and understanding is important for moving forward together on Truth and Reconciliation in a meaningful way. Read the report here.
As part of our commitment to becoming more inclusive, and advancing recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, we’re working towards Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification with the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB).
ATB is a PAR Committed organization and is required to submit regular reports of our activities. We will undergo external verification of our performance in the future so that we may become a PAR Gold organization.
We’re here for the greater good
For ATB, being in business for the greater good is about driving greater social impact and uplifting the economic wellbeing of Albertans. For examples, areas of focus and donation criteria, read on.
