CN’s Indigenous Advisory Board quits – Inside Logistics

December 13, 2023

A 12-member advisory board set up by CN in 2021 has submitted their resignation as a group.

The resignation of all 12 members of the CN Indigenous Advisory Council (IAC), was submitted to CN’s Board of Directors and is effective December 31, 2023. Through engagement with Indigenous communities nationwide, the Council’s mandate was to help the organization bridge understanding and build connections and was committed to transparently outlining future steps for CN’s reconciliation efforts.

In response, CN published a formal Acknowledgement of the historical role railways played as instruments of colonial policies, as well as the intergenerational economic, cultural, and social effects that these policies have had on Indigenous communities. CN operates within or adjacent to more than 220 reserve lands of nearly 130 First Nations and Métis Communities.

“CN is committed to its journey towards Reconciliation. That journey begins with a better understanding of history, and thoughtful commitments coupled with robust governance to measure our performance against those commitments,” said Olivier Chouc, CN’s senior vice-president, responsible for Indigenous Relations.
