JLR firmly believes in fostering authentic relationships and partnerships that last. JLR has the honour of working in collaboration with various Indigenous communities to deliver projects that shape the modern built reality of their traditional territories.

Over the years, JLR has developed close working relationships with many Indigenous organizations and overseen the completion of many successful projects. We have designed everything from buildings to largescale infrastructure projects. We are proud of the rewarding work we do and are delighted to cater to our client’s specific requirements including unique cultural needs. This attention to detail in our work has resulted in our long history of strong and continuous client relationships with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities.

Several of JLR’s staff specialize in development and support of services in this sector. We have worked with communities throughout Ontario, and are proud of this work that has resulted in some of our most rewarding projects. Our attention to client-specific requirements, including unique cultural needs has allowed us to develop these strong relationships.
