Laurentis launches RAP to help advance Indigenous reconciliation in Canada

Laurentis Energy Partners (Laurentis) is proud to announce the launch of its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), outlining its commitments towards supporting Indigenous reconciliation and inclusion in Canada’s energy sector.

Laurentis’s RAP is a direct response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call to Action #92, which calls on corporate Canada to establish mutually beneficial relationships with Indigenous Peoples and contribute to healing the historical harms caused by colonization. The RAP is a formalized set of commitments, translating the company’s good intentions into action and creating meaningful impacts for Indigenous Peoples.

Developed in consultation with Indigenous-owned strategic consulting firm Creative Fire, the RAP is the result of a transparent and highly collaborative process. Facilitated engagement sessions with internal and external stakeholders informed a plan that is built around five pillars: governance, education, employment, community and economic engagement, and health and wellness.

"Laurentis is committed to actively engaging in reconciliation efforts and building strong partnerships with Indigenous Peoples that will result in positive change in the energy sector,” said Jason Van Wart, Laurentis’s President and CEO. “We are proud to have a diverse team of talented individuals who embody and uphold principles of integrity, respect, and collaboration and who will support these efforts.”

The RAP is a living document marking the beginning of Laurentis’s journey towards creating a better future for Indigenous Peoples. Through ongoing training, awareness campaigns, and the establishment of internal mechanisms for accountability and feedback, Laurentis aims to ensure that every employee is actively engaged in the implementation of the RAP and promoting Indigenous inclusion and empowerment within the company and beyond.
