First Nations

Island Timberlands recognizes and respects the rights of indigenous peoples. Island Timberlands will endeavor to foster and maintain positive relationships with First Nations peoples in the Company’s areas of operation. We will strive for open dialogue with the intent to ascertain an understanding of First Nations’ traditional and contemporary use of forest-based products and identification of, and respect for, known cultural heritage sites. Where positive relations are established, we are open to exploring opportunities which may include employment, training or business alliances.
