Aboriginal Relations

Aboriginal Relations

CN operates within or adjacent to nearly 200 different reserve lands of more than 110 First Nations and some Métis territories, in eight provinces. Working alongside Aboriginal communities across the CN network, we make it a priority to strengthen our ties, cultivate and develop mutually beneficial relationships and create economic opportunities to work toward Reconciliation.

Our Logo

Our Aboriginal Affairs' logo has been inspired by the relationships CN maintains with all Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The First Nations are represented by the eagle feather, the Métis are represented by the infinity symbol and the Inuit by the Inukshuk. A CN team, including Human Resources and Aboriginal Affairs, worked with the University of Winnipeg's Indigenous Studies group to create the logo.

The three symbols representing the three Aboriginal peoples of Canada are placed with the CN logo showing CN's commitment to developing and maintaining respectful and sustainable relationships with Aboriginal peoples across its network.
