Options for Getting Involved

The RRII offers three primary pathways for getting involved, depending on the level of commitment you are looking to make.

Shareholder Engagement

Engagement has a track record of tangible and effective change, as it targets corporate concerns at the root of the issue and uses financial investments as leverage for change.

Tailored Education and Support

The RRII can provide tailored education sessions and resources to help your organization better understand and support reconciliation efforts.

Timely Research and Guides

The RRII conducts and produces timely research on reconciliation and investment in Canada and abroad.

How can your investments progress reconciliation?

The RRII works with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations to create meaningful shareholder engagement campaigns.

With a lens of reconciliation and social justice, we work with allied institutional investors and service providers to develop a clear vision, framework and strategy for responsible investment, ensuring that your goals and projects are grounded in the Truth and Reconciliation calls to action.

Shareholder engagement involves connecting and conversing with companies in your portfolio to advocate for improved corporate policies and practices. As an allied organization, your voice can help further amplify calls from Indigenous trusts and organizations, or set additional goals and milestones for reconciliation.

Our Engagement Collaborators

Our engagement offerings are hosted together with SHARE—Shareholder Association for Research and Education.

SHARE is a leading responsible investing organization that works with institutional investors to steward their assets in ways that contribute to positive social and environmental outcomes.

SHARE’s engagement services have a track record of leading change by developing new areas of research and engagement, including workers’ rights, climate action, reconciliation and affordable housing.

With support from SHARE, the Values in Action program introdces allied investors to a network that regularly engages with Canadian companies on improving their environmental, social, and governance practices, including those related to reconciliation.

“We expect governments and politicians to resolve issues like Indigenous exclusion. However, power in our society is more often than not an economic issue. Throughout history, excluded communities have gained inclusion through economic empowerment, not just political empowerment.”
