Indigenous Engagement Program

OCNI is committed to advancing progressive Indigenous relations in the nuclear community, and we support our members as they invest and engage with Indigenous communities, create Indigenous employment opportunities, procure from Indigenous businesses, and raise the bar for Indigenous Relations (IR) programs globally.

The OCNI Indigenous Engagement Program includes both internal and external actions:


  • Developing resources and relationships to support our member’s IR programs and activities
  • Developing Indigenous training and resource materials
  • Creating new policy and governance that supports Indigenous Issues
  • Creating Indigenous communications content
  • Working towards CCAB PAR Program Certification


  • Supporting our member’s IR programs, activities, and events
  • Engaging in outreach to Indigenous communities of interest and adjacent to our members
  • Arranging opportunities for business and relationship development
  • Developing partnerships with Indigenous business and employment organizations
  • Advocating for progressive Indigenous relations in the nuclear community
