“I am invigorated by the opportunity that this partnership represents to apply the principle of ‘Two-Eyed Seeing’ to enhance the relationships we have built with Indigenous communities in BC and throughout Canada,” said Teranis Managing Principal, Ian Collings. “Mi’kmaw Elder, Albert Marshall, defined two-eyed seeing or Etuaptmumk as learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing and from the other eye with the strengths of mainstream knowledge and ways of knowing. We see many inequities in the communities we operate in, and we believe that as part of IBI, we will be able to provide more holistic support by gaining access to the firm’s integrated professional service offering.”
