Noralta Lodge Wins Indigenous Relations: Best Practice Award – Alberta Chamber of Commerce
EDMONTON, AB – March 6, 2018
Noralta Lodge is proud to have been awarded the Indigenous Relations – Best Practice Award of Distinction at the 2018 Alberta Business Awards of Distinction on March 2, 2018.
The Indigenous Relations – Best Practice Award of Distinction is given to a non-Indigenous business that demonstrates outstanding achievements in Indigenous relations, including economic development, employment and training, and Indigenous community support. The award recognizes a non-Indigenous business that best links these pillars and is recognized by the Indigenous community as such.
Developing Key Aboriginal Partnerships has been the cornerstone of Noralta Lodge’s strategy, and differentiation within our industry. We are proud to have aligned ourselves with the prominent Aboriginal groups in the communities where we operate.
Noralta Lodge is exited to receive this award at a time when we are so focused on Indigenous relations. In May 2017, Dene Koe, our partnership with Fort McKay First Nations that Noralta Lodge operates, was awarded a ten-year deal with Suncor as the exclusive provider of workforce accommodation for Suncor’s Base Plant and MacKay River oilsands operations. This partnership provides Suncor with a cost effective premium product and logistical efficiencies, while providing increased economic opportunity for the Fort McKay First Nation.
In each of our joint ventures with Aboriginal partners, we are committed to creating strong relationships that benefit both the industry and the communities where we work. We work hard to foster these mutually beneficial business partnerships throughout Western Canada and Canada’s North. We’ve found that partnerships that value everyone’s expertise create more innovative, more dependable, and higher-quality lodging services. That’s good for our clients, neighbours and community.
