Working on forest lands throughout BC since 1946, forestry firm Teal Jones has a decades-long history of productive partnerships with First Nations. Teal Jones has struck working relationships with 106 First Nations in BC in recent years, the specifics of each engagement varying widely with the interests of individual First Nations.

Businesses have an important role to play in reconciliation, says Teal Jones' spokesperson.
In BC, where the forest industry remains one of the largest sectors, successful partnerships between the industry and First Nations can play a major part in economic reconciliation.
“Taking the approach we do isn’t just good business that opens up opportunities for both Teal Jones and First Nations interested in working with us, but ensures we are doing our part to support the higher purpose of acknowledging the past and pursuing reconciliation across BC and Canada,” Browne adds. “Businesses have an important role to play.”
Teal Jones is supporting the Indigenous Partnerships Success Showcase coming May 26th and 27th, 2022, in Vancouver and online. Readers can learn more and purchase tickets to this exciting event by visiting https://tealjones.com/indigenousengagement/
