Here are examples of the diversity of our work on some recent projects involving over 20 First Nations:
Kinder Morgan’s TransMountain Pipeline
We are currently working with 12 Bands from Alberta and BC to help them with their negotiation strategies and approaches to procurement opportunities on the $7.1 Billion Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Project.
We are also assisting a number of these Bands to form Joint Ventures with over twenty different private sector companies who all have the capacity and ability to work on the pipeline project.
Cheam First Nation
We are currently assisting Cheam First Nation to re-structure Cheam Enterprises Inc (CEI), their Development Corporation. As Cheam First Nation moves ahead with the ratification of a Land Code, which will open up some of the reserve lands for real estate and industrial development, we are helping CEI identify a variety of real estate opportunities. We have created over 14 limited partnerships in 2016/2017 for CEI with private sector groups across a range of industries. As we move towards 2018, we are working closely with CEI to assist in their negotiations with Kinder Morgan on the TransMountain Pipeline expansion project, with the goal of maximising procurement opportunities for CEI and its partners.
