Infrastructure & Resource Development

There has been a fundamental shift in the way governments and businesses interact with Canada’s Indigenous peoples. But fractured discourse between Federal, Provincial and Aboriginal governments have slowed development of our natural resources sector to a halt.

Enterprise is offering a path to open up opportunity. A direction that clears the way for sustainable development through partnership that will enable Indigenous peoples to lead and influence natural resource development in the Canadian economy.

Look Inside

Our philosophy is guided by three key principles:

  1. Projects on Indigenous peoples land must be majority owned by impacted Indigenous peoples communities;
  2. Projects and decisions must be Indigenous peoples-led, with capacity development including training and jobs made available to local people; and
  3. Corporate partnerships must be built on a foundation of trust and strong, long-term relationships.

At Enterprise, we are working with all sectors of society to achieve social, environmental and economic progress. We build sustainable partnerships for sustainable infrastructure and resource development projects. Our framework and the relationships built within it bring real, tangible benefits to communities that have been on the margins of mainstream Canada for far too long.

We are committed to leaving the world a better place than we found it.
