Indigenous Engagement

FortisAlberta acknowledges the importance of building and nurturing authentic relationships within the communities we serve, which includes the 20 First Nations and two Métis Settlement lands and traditional territories on which we operate. We are respectful of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, their land and their culture, and we recognize them as the traditional stewards of the land. Our journey is ongoing, and we will keep striving to advance the process of reconciliation.

Partnering in success

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.

Events and sponsorships

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.
