On this episode of the Construction Record Podcast, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with Derek Chum, the vice-president of Indigenous Community and Engagement, a leading firm in Indigenous stakeholder engagement that develops Reconciliation-rooted approaches to advancing Indigenous socio-economic development in Canada.
The interview focused on the recent announcement of a limited partnership called Indigenous E3, a special purpose limited partnership formed between SNC-Lavalin and Indigenous Community and Engagement, whose stated aim is to identify and deliver projects that support Indigenous advancement and long-term prosperity.
