Shaping a shared path for reconciliation
Building an inclusive and sustainable future—together
The Deloitte Canada Reconciliation Action Plan
As a follow-up to our 2019 Indigenous impact report, Deloitte has developed and committed to a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). It answers the call to act made to the business community by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, one of the 94 calls to action the commission issued in 2015.
The first of its kind to be published in corporate Canada, this RAP is our pledge to follow a path to reconciliation by fostering meaningful and lasting relationships in working with Indigenous peoples, clients, and communities. It represents our commitment to Indigenous peoples and communities, which we will embed throughout our business. And while it is Deloitte’s plan, we believe it is a foundation upon which all Canadian citizens and business leaders can build harmonious and genuine partnerships based on mutual respect and cooperation.
For Canada to move forward, we must create a more equitable society, one that respects the history and truth of this land. This is but the starting point of our firm’s journey of reconciliation; we expect to adjust as we progress.
Making an impact that matters
At Deloitte, we’re driven by our Purpose to make an impact that matters to our clients, our people, and our communities. Deloitte has been committed to supporting Indigenous leaders, communities, and organizations for nearly 30 years. By investing our time and professional skills, we aim to break down barriers, such as access to education and employment, in order to build an inclusive and sustainable future for all.
Through projects spearheaded by our Deloitte colleagues from coast to coast over the past couple of years, we have been making an impact:
- Our practitioners have given more than 450 hours to volunteer and pro bono projects that have positively affected the lives of more than 4,000 Indigenous people.
- We have donated more than $500,000—raised through fundraisers, sponsorships, partnerships, and events—to support Indigenous organizations and communities.
- Eleven of our senior leaders have provided hundreds of volunteer hours as part of their non-profit board-of-directors role serving Indigenous organizations.
From our Indigenous and Allies Community to our involvement with the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, and more, we continue to strive for reconciliation.
