Our Commitment to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Communities

In today's environment, it is more important than ever for Indigenous communities, organizations, companies and individuals to make well-informed decisions, which is why it is essential to have an advisor who fully understands your circumstances. MNP has embraced the opportunity to become more familiar with Indigenous peoples, including their history, culture and incredible contribution to our country. Through this important relationship, we have come to recognize the role that Indigenous values play in future planning, daily operations and decision making.

Our deep breadth of experience has made MNP the preferred firm for Indigenous groups, including First Nations, Tribal Councils, organizations and Indigenous community - or individual - owned businesses.
