UPDATE FOR THE ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY – WINTER 2007/SPRING 2008
Meet the Chief!
Chief Monias is one of the youngest Aboriginal leaders in Canada, has been elected to the position of Chief of Heart Lake First Nation four times and has held the office since 1996.
The Heart Lake First Nation is located 65 kilometers northeast of Lac La Biche, in northern Alberta, where approximately 300 band members reside. Chief Monias is a strong advocate in developing opportunities for his community members to participate in the oil and gas industry and Heart Lake First Nation has built effective working relationships with EnCana and other industry leaders. More than 200 band members are employed by Heart Lake Contracting and are engaged in building lease pads, access right of way roads and other dirt work.
“Our vision for Heart Lake is to have a major role in developing natural gas and oil alongside the major companies. It translates into profit and employment, people build their confidence and it instills a lot of pride. It has taken many years and meetings for us to get to this point and we are now expanding our companies to better service the resource industry with competitive rates and strong safety policies.”
