Indigenous Economic Value Creation

The Power Team’s Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP) commits to over $100 million and 10% of contract value (double the request from Canada) for Indigenous participation.

Through procurement and subcontracting initiatives, we are providing worthwhile career opportunities, training, skills development and apprenticeship opportunities for Indigenous businesses and people.


Economic benefits being driven into Indigenous businesses include:

  • In-production component manufacturing

  • Sustainment services

  • Material supply

  • Translation services

Joining in August of 2018, General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada is proud to be the first major defence company in Canada to become a member of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB).

Continuing to demonstrate commitment to indigenous reconciliation, General Dynamics Land Systems – Canada is undertaking the CCAB’s Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) certification program. The PAR certification program provides structured independent, third-party verification of company reports on measurable outcomes and initiatives in four performance areas: Leadership Actions, Employment, Business Development, and Community Relations (Engagement and Support).
