Our reconciliation commitment 

TELUS, in partnership with Indigenous Peoples, is committed to progressing the path of reconciliation in a deeply meaningful way, and is dedicated to fulfilling our role and responsibilities in alignment with Indigenous-led frameworks of reconciliation.  


Our guiding pillars

Our reconciliation strategy weaves together our strategic intent, TELUS values, and corporate priorities with four guiding pillars where TELUS believes we can enable the greatest outcomes as informed by Indigenous Peoples. It is underpinned by the integration of Indigenous ways of knowing and ethical space into TELUS.


Our Indigenous reconciliation action plan

TELUS spent 2021 engaging with Indigenous leaders, Elders, and subject matter experts to develop an inclusive Indigenous Reconciliation Strategy and Reconciliation Action Plan. Leveraging our core competencies, our action plan lays out our commitments and targets over the coming years.

TELUS’ commitment to artistic integrity

We are committed to supporting the artistic practices of Indigenous Peoples, while being mindful of the historic role organizations have played in the misappropriation of Indigenous art and culture. We have an obligation and responsibility to ensure that TELUS’ use of Indigenous art in our digital and physical spaces is respectful of Indigenous artists. TELUS works with each artist to ensure that they retain full intellectual property and control over their work.
