Our engagement with Indigenous groups continues to be informed by the rapidly evolving legal landscape and regulatory requirements in the countries where we operate, all of which have laws pertaining to the protection of Indigenous rights and interests. TransCanada strives not only to meet but exceed regulatory requirements. On an ongoing basis, we also track developments regarding Indigenous rights at the international level.
We acknowledge the unique governance of Indigenous groups, their rights, relationship to the land and legal standing. One way we do this is through participation agreements, which can provide compensation to Indigenous groups potentially affected by our activities.
