(Attending the Saskatoon Tribal Council Assembly)
“It has been incredible. I was prepared for the business part of the visit. The partnership, the relationship. All those things that we are focused on and that I am well briefed on. The part that struck me the most was how warm and welcoming the Tribal Council has been to Nutrien and to me personally. I have to admit that CEO Cliff's and Tribal Chief Arcand's comments struck a chord with me. They were personal and non-scripted and really something that I will remember for the foreseeable future.” - Chuck Magro
Nutrien is committed to providing opportunities for Aboriginal people and communities across all our strategies, including human resources, community relations and investment, and procurement. Aboriginal people are an essential part of our future workforce. We engage with them starting in primary and secondary schools by supporting and participating in science fairs, literacy camps, STEM workshops, and career boot camps. We also offer scholarships to high school and post-secondary students, as well as, internships, where individuals can gain experience to become more qualified candidates.
We connect with Aboriginal people of all ages and qualifications at community and educational career fairs to share information about our workplaces, highlight available opportunities, and cover educational requirements. Providing Aboriginal people with opportunities to engage and work with us ensures they have a seat at the table. We believe that Canadians of all backgrounds must do more than simply talk about Reconciliation, which is why Nutrien is taking action. Join us and let's see what we can accomplish together!
Reconciliation is important. Nutrien recognizes the issues and brings forth strategies that would open doors for people to enter the workforce. My parents were part of the Residential school system. I have heard their stories. Some people have lost key aspects of their culture and identity. Reconciliation and subsequent programs give an opportunity to tell their stories and regain their identities. Aboriginal people are a greatly growing resource. Nutrien's Diversity and Inclusion group is reaching out to bring awareness to the company's mandate and opportunities within. Through awareness training of employees and its suppliers, they are bringing a deeper understanding of what Reconciliation means. For that, on behalf of my parents, thank you.
After completing a summer internship with Nutrien, I immediately knew I wanted to be with them after graduation. During my last year at school, I noticed a temporary position for a new graduate at Nutrien-Patience Lake and I immediately applied for it. I was recruited for the position and accepted knowing it was only temporary, but I had hoped that it would turn into a permanent position. During my work term at Patience Lake I was offered a permanent position and I was so excited! That was exactly what I wanted. With no hesitations, I accepted the permanent offer and took on the role as Process Engineer. I have worked very hard to earn many responsibilities in my role now and I am loving it.
I grew up in North Battleford and attended the University of Saskatchewan, where I completed a degree in Environmental Engineering. Leading up to graduation, I was very excited to start my career in the workforce and was eager to go wherever the opportunity became available. I received confirmation that I would be joining the Nutrien workforce as a Lab Technician at the Rocanville site. Even though this was not a position directly in my professional wheelhouse, I worked as a Lab Technician for 11 months with some wonderful people, gaining valuable experience. I then moved to the role of Environmental Engineer within the site and have been there since March of 2018.
It doesn't matter if you're just starting your career or are a seasoned professional, we believe learning is lifelong.

At Nutrien, our commitment to Aboriginal communities in Canada is rooted in our mutual success. This means investing in the long-term sustainability and viability of the provinces where we operate through the support of initiatives, programs, and services that contribute to closing the economic participation gap of Aboriginal people.

One example we are proud of is the Nutrien Aboriginal Youth Entrepreneurship Program, which has helped a number of Saskatoon Tribal Council (STC) communities establish youth business clubs. Students gain experience in business planning, marketing, networking, and philanthropy, which helps them lead their communities and companies into the future.
