At FortisAlberta, we build relationships in the communities where we work, including 20 individual First Nations and two Metis Settlements. When we work on Indigenous lands and in traditional territories, we always involve community members in our process, and hire and train people from the area.
If you have questions about our Indigenous Engagement programs, please email Stan Orlesky, Supervisor, Stakeholder Relations.
Projects succeed when we work together. When we’re doing work in Aboriginal communities, we do so with help from First Nations and Metis Settlement training and employment departments, who help us hire the staff we need.
Giving back to the communities we serve and recognizing outstanding Albertans is important to us. We sponsor events like the Aboriginal Role Model of Alberta Awards, hosted by Enoch Cree Nation, as well as several First Nations Pow Wows, rodeos and holiday celebrations.
