CCAB Aboriginal Procurement Champion
Clark Builders is pleased to announce that we’ve been accepted as members of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business’s (CCAB) Aboriginal Procurement Champions Group.
The Aboriginal Procurement Champion Group is a key element of CCAB’s Aboriginal Procurement Strategy, aiming to create an unprecedented, national approach to Aboriginal supplier diversity, and working closely with leaders from the business community to serve as Aboriginal Procurement Champions.
CCAB’s Supply Change™ consists of a 5-pillar procurement strategy aimed at overcoming social economic barriers and strengthening connections between corporate Canada, Government, and Indigenous businesses from coast to coast.
As members of the Aboriginal Procurement Champions program, Clark Builders now has access to Canada’s largest directory of Certified Aboriginal Businesses via CCAB’s Supply Change™ program. This will allow us to increase our partnerships with Indigenous business owners and demonstrate our commitment to reconciliation, while continuing to expand our own procurement practices.
“We commend Clark Builders for their continued commitment to supporting Indigenous growth and reconciliation. Clark Builders is a committed member of CCAB’s Progressive Aboriginal Relations program and now an Aboriginal Procurement Champion, displaying their dedication to grow and create economic opportunities with Indigenous businesses,” said CCAB President & CEO, Tabatha Bull.
“Clark Builders is dedicated to building trusting partnerships and enduring relationships with Canada’s First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities,” says Clark Builders CEO, Andrew Ross. “With this certification, we’re hoping to continue to show our leadership and commitment to Indigenous business.”
We are proud of the meaningful relationships we have built with Indigenous people and communities and are excited to continue our commitment and enhance our involvement through our new membership with the CCAB Aboriginal Procurement Champions Group.
