First Nations Relationships

We’re always looking for ways to build stronger connections with communities, and that defines how we work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Meaningful engagement with these peoples and businesses—and a commitment to the prosperity of their communities—is essential to our promise to design with community in mind.   

Our values guide our actions. To achieve respectful and supportive relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and businesses, we recognise the cultural history, diversity, and distinctiveness of their communities. 

Stantec acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to the land, waters, and communities where we work. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present, and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Partners for change

We commit to developing capacity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and communities through job training, education support, and employment initiatives as well as by providing opportunities for equitable business development. We know that increasing our ability to achieve this requires ongoing learning and action. That’s why we work with organisations like Kinaway and Engineering Aid Australia. Together, we become partners for change.

Our journey towards reconciliation

We know that reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians. Our Reconciliation Action Plan Artwork details Stantec’s journey towards achieving reconciliation and acknowledges the importance of bringing together diverse perspectives to collaborate towards a shared success.
