Indigenous and Community Engagement

Indigenous Community Engagement

Royal Camp Services Ltd is extremely proud of the relationships we have fostered over the years with indigenous communities, people and business in all jurisdictions where we have operations.

Our company works with Indigenous communities on the basis of four key elements of focus that constitute what we define as the Four Pillars of our engagement. These pillars are the driving force for how we conduct ourselves and do business with the First Nation, Metis and Inuit communities with which we engage:

First Nation relation

Mutual Respect

Royal Camp Services Ltd. acknowledges that we are all Treaty people who live and work together in mutual benefit to prosper from the opportunities that the land provides for us all.

Our goal is to demonstrate our commitment and adherence to this statement through our best efforts to seek out co-operation and partnership with indigenous communities and organizations in all regions we have or hope to develop operations.


Any relationship takes time to build. It may begin with a business opportunity but it never ends there. At Royal our goal is to build relationships with partner indigenous communities that demonstrate Royal Camp Services Ltd. is a proud and committed member of the local business community.

We know that our partner communities recognize the many values associated with our participation in the life of the community or our support for the growth and development of healthy community members through employment, training and career development.


It takes a committed and focused workforce to keep a healthy business actively growing and evolving to meet the needs of a constantly changing marketplace. Over the years, our company has successfully demonstrated an industry-leading commitment to the inclusion of persons of indigenous heritage in our workforce.

With the indigenous segment of our workforce numbering in the hundreds, we know that our work with partner communities, local indigenous populations, and indigenous organizations that support workforce development and training has proven successful.


It takes many different types of services to keep our facilities operating smoothly. Local indigenous businesses have played a key role in meeting the needs of our clients and guests. Our company has developed strong ties to those indigenous company’s already providing services to our operations and we work with our partner communities to ensure we will continue to grow and expand on those opportunities as our business grows and develops in to the future.

First Nation relation

We understand that there is no one way to do business

Every opportunity has its own unique characteristics and every community has its own particular distinctions, needs, goals and objectives. Our approach to community engagement and dialogue is to be transparent and open about who we are, what we do and how we do it, and to listen to what potential partner communities say partnership looks like to them.

There are opportunities when something big can happen and have success. There are also times when starting small, building for success and growing competency in the partnership is a better route to follow. There are other times when partnership may be something entirely different than what either party considered at the outset of the conversation.
