Rochon Building Corporation seeks to engage, and consult with, Indigenous peoples to encourage their active participation in the workforce and subcontracting opportunities. Rochon understands that contribution to economic reconciliation includes employing Indigenous peoples, purchasing from Indigenous businesses, conducting business with Indigenous partners, and conducting meaningful engagement.
Delivering projects across a wide variety of sectors, the company works with a diverse group of employees, subcontractors, partners, and clients including a growing number of projects and partnerships with Indigenous communities and companies. These companies include some of the more than 43,000 Aboriginal-owned businesses in Canada, with which Rochon networks to advance Indigenous business inclusion and participation in the economy.
To facilitate change for the better, Rochon has sought out certain organizations like INDSPIRE – an Indigenous national charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people for the long-term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.
Another is CCAB – The Canadian Council of Aboriginal Business which builds bridges between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples, businesses, and communities through diverse programming, providing tools, training, network building, major business awards, and national events.
