Here are examples of the diversity of our work on some recent projects involving First Nations clients:
The TransMountain Pipeline Project
We are currently working with Bands from both Alberta and BC to help them with their negotiation strategies and approaches to procurement opportunities on the $9 Billion TransMountain 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.
St’at’imc Government Services (SGS)
We have recently assisted SGS to form new ‘Nation Level’ Limited Partnerships which are designed to help the ten signatory Bands to the St’at’imc BC Hydro agreements get procurement opportunities on all future projects in their territory.
Upper Nicola Band
We are working with the community on developing a ‘Five-year Economic Development Strategy’ which will help identify projects and business opportunities in their territory that will be worth pursuing.
Shackan Indian Band
We are working with Shackan’s development corporation on a cannabis greenhouse project which will be the largest of its kind in western Canada.
Neskonlith Indian Band
We recently completed the remodelling, staff recruitment, training and opening of an existing gas station site that had fallen into disrepair. The Band now has a brand-new gas station which is doing very well.
