Ten of Teck’s 12 operations in Canada, Chile and the United States and the majority of our exploration and development projects are located within or adjacent to Indigenous Peoples’ territories.
In addition to the United Nations declaration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9, there are a number of annual days of recognition and celebration of regional Indigenous Peoples that Teck would like to acknowledge:
Australia: National Reconciliation Week, May 27 – June 3
Canada: National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21
Chile: National Day of World Indigenous People, June 24, and International Day of Indigenous Women, September 5
Alaska: Indigenous Peoples Day, October 8
USA: Native American Heritage Day, November 23
