Recognizing International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

Recognizing International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples

On August 9, the world will mark International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, a day recognized by the United Nations General Assembly as an opportunity to promote and protect the rights of the world’s Indigenous populations.

Established in recognition of the first meeting of the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations in Geneva in 1982, the day also aims to strengthen international cooperation for addressing issues faced by Indigenous Peoples in areas such as human rights, the environment, development, education, health, the economy and social development.

This is also an opportunity for Teck to reaffirm our commitment to working in partnership with Indigenous communities where we operate in our shared commitment to responsible resource development.

Please take a moment to review our Indigenous Peoples Policy on August 9, and join us in recognizing International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
