Telus commits to Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plan, invites others to join

Wednesday 29 September 2021 | 09:25 CET | News
Canadian operator Telus is developing an inaugural Indigenous Reconciliation Action Plan, to strengthen its relationship with Indigenous Peoples, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities, and to provide them with the unique connectivity, tools and resources they need. Towards this end, the company has formally launched a Reconciliation Commitment, to act as the foundation for its action plan. The company hopes other Canadian corporations will join the Calls to Action and so help elevate Canada's understanding of its "shared history."
