Canadian Natural promotes local and regional business opportunities through the procurement of goods and services. We actively engage with community and business leaders, including Aboriginal groups, to facilitate and identify local and regional economic opportunities. We believe that employment and business opportunities will in turn improve the quality of life in these communities.
We continue to work effectively with local contractors and vendors in an effort to prequalify them for upcoming project work and ensure they meet our requirements. With the goal of increasing eligibility of Aboriginal people and businesses in contracted supplies and services, we started registering contractors on our Comply Works database in 2011.
