Businesses can send a powerful message about the importance of standing up for treaty rights. Did you know that new Canadians must take a pledge to honour the treaties? The vast majority of our employment & industry is dependent on a healthy ecosystem and the vibrant culture that thrives in part because we uphold Indigenous caretaker values.

To support the Tar Sands Trial, businesses can donate a percentage of a day’s sales, match employee donations, or donate money on behalf of their customers. You can also support the Tar Sands Trial where you work by starting an online fundraising team at your office or school: click “Become a Fundraiser” then choose “As a Team”. The Moksha chain of yoga studios raised over $90,000 for RAVEN by offering classes by donation:  almost 20 other yoga studios followed suit. A taqueira, a spa, and a coffee shop each donated a day’s revenues. A limited edition chocolate bar from Denman Island Chocolate secured them (and us) a tonne of media. We have created beautiful and professional materials for businesses to share in their shops and on social media. Contact us to brainstorm ideas that fit your brand and work to engage your employees and customers.
