Recognition for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

LP is committed to building and maintaining positive relationships with Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous Nations. We acknowledge that Indigenous People and Nations exercise rights protected by the Constitution Act, 1982 in the areas in which LP operates in Canada. LP’s efforts in building positive relationships with Indigenous Peoples and Nations shall be guided by relevant principles, which may include the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

We recognize that environmentally responsible and economically sustainable forest management includes mutually beneficial relationships with local Indigenous Peoples and Nations. LP is committed to engaging with Indigenous Peoples and Nations through opportunities that relate to:

  • Local employment
  • Job training and education
  • Business relations and agreements
  • Community involvement and outreach

Further, LP is committed to providing education for its team internally, including management and staff, on the histories of Indigenous Peoples, UNDRIP, Aboriginal treaties and rights, Indigenous laws and Indigenous-Crown relations.
