CN (CNR) has appointed Ms. Roberta Louise Jamieson and the Honourable Murray Sinclair as co-chairs of its new Indigenous advisory council.

The CN Indigenous Advisory Council (IAC) is an independent body comprised of representatives from Indigenous peoples across the country.

The council will advise CN’s board on issues that are relevant to the company in its relationship with the over 200 Indigenous communities in which it operates.

Robert Pace, CN board chair, commented,

“By creating the IAC, CN seeks to improve existing relationships and to build meaningful and positive new relationships with Indigenous peoples. It is why, in 2013, we adopted the CN Aboriginal vision.”

He added,

“Now, with the guidance of our co-chairs and the members of IAC, CN intends to strengthen and formalize these commitments as part of our wider corporate environmental, social, and governance goals.”

Roberta Jamieson is an experienced mediator serving as Commissioner of the Indian Commission of Ontario. She was the first First Nations woman in Canada to earn a law degree and the first woman to be elected chief of the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.

“The Indigenous Advisory Council is an important forum for us to engage in an honest and constructive dialogue between the Company and Indigenous leaders so that we can all aspire to our full potential,” commented Ms. Jamieson.

The Honourable Murray Sinclair is an Anishinaabe and a member of the Peguis First Nation. He is a Fourth Degree Chief of the Midewiwin Society, a traditional healing and spiritual society of the Anishinaabe Nation responsible for protecting the teachings, ceremonies, laws, and history of the Anishinaabe.

“This initiative on the part of CN demonstrates once again the company’s commitment to developing meaningful relationships based on respect, education and mutual benefit,” he remarked.

Canadian National is a world-class transportation leader and trade enabler. Its railway spans Canada from coast to coast and extends through Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico.

Canadian National Railway Company (CNR) is down 1.21 per cent and is trading at $134.78 per share as of 11:47 pm ET.
