Quote icon “It is truly an honour to serve as a Chief of a Nation that has a rich history of emphasizing the importance of economic development. While we have recently gone through a transition in leadership at the Mikisew Cree First Nation level, we remain committed to our principles that have allowed Mikisew Group to grow into one of the largest First Nation-owned businesses in this country. As a Nation, we continuously strive for self-sufficiency and we understand that generating our own sources of revenue and creating employment opportunities is paramount in seeing that goal become a reality. Mikisew Group provides us with an opportunity to participate in the economic prosperity of our province while ensuring the cultural and environmental heritage of our community is preserved and protected. As Canada’s first entrepreneurs, it is critical that Indigenous communities such as Mikisew continue to be the driving force of generating economic success in our country. Through applying the skills our ancestors have taught us, leveraging and strengthening our relationships with our clients, and engaging our membership, I believe we will continuously soar to new heights as a company.”
