Indigenous Engagement

Rise Consulting provides a variety of services to facilitate and support meaningful engagement between organizations and Indigenous communities. Through the creation of positive relationships and trust, knowledge is exchanged and shared goals are established. 

Indigenous engagement services are offered in two ways: operational services or project-based services. Rise Consulting works with organizations to create and support engagement programs that achieve goals and manage associated risks that can potentially arise when Aboriginal and treaty rights (Section 35) may be adversely affected by operations or project development.

Indigenous Inclusion and Economic Development 

Project development in the energy industry presents the opportunity for organizations and Indigenous communities to work together to create shared goals to maximize project benefits to communities with an interest in the project or interests potentially affected by the project. 

Rise Consulting provides strategic support to create and implement programs to support economic development within communities focused on workforce development (education and training), employment, business development and procurement and community investment with both projects and operations.

Regulatory Support

Rise Consulting provides guidance, research and writing support, with a focus on Indigenous engagement and inclusion, for projects operating in a regulated environment. Services such as: application writing; engagement activity reporting (focus on Indigenous engagement activities); log management; information request response-writing; and, hearing preparation, attendance and follow-up.
