INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT IN CANADA
This report explores the engagement between Indigenous Peoples and the Responsible Investment (RI) industry in Canada. Based on interviews with stakeholders, observation of industry conferences, and documentary evidence collected during the first year of the pandemic (i.e., March 2020-March 2021), this report offers an overview of the current discussions regarding Indigenous Peoples in the RI industry.
RI is an investment approach that incorporates Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors into the selection and management of investments (RIA, 2021). In 2019, the Responsible Investment Association (RIA) estimated that assets in Canada managed using one or more RI strategies2 were worth $3.2 trillion, or 61.8 per cent, of total Canadian assets under management (RIA, 2020).
