Our commitment to the Treaty of Waitangi

The IPCA is committed to being responsive to Māori as tangata whenua and recognising the Treaty of Waitangi as New Zealand's founding document.

Our staff receive training in Māori culture and protocol through a series of Tikanga Māori workshops covering:

  • customs and traditional Māori values
  • the protocols of engaging with Māori families
  • correct pronunciation of Te Reo.
