Our Company History

Guided by tradition, perfected through experience

Since 1991, Mikisew Group has been a leading oil sands partner specializing in site services, maintenance, logistics and construction. We foster the responsible development of our land’s resources while powering sustainable economic progress in our communities and beyond.

Pride and strength in community

Guided by traditions and knowledge of our land in all that we do, Mikisew Group is the distinct business entity of the Mikisew Cree First Nation, whose people benefit from and are inspired by our success. We have the experience and capability of a large corporation while maintaining the trustworthiness of an organization that values family and community.

Evolving together

As part of a sustainable economic engine propelling our people forward, we are committed to growing and developing from within. We are a market leader in hiring and retaining Indigenous employees, not just from the Mikisew Cree First Nation but from Indigenous communities across Canada. Dedicated to giving back, Mikisew Group supported more than 20 initiatives from Edmonton to Fort Chipewyan in 2018 alone.


In 2019, Mikisew Group acquired Guthrie Mechanical Services, Northern Alberta’s most knowledgeable and dependable provider of consolidated facilities, industrial maintenance, lifting and tool repair services. Mikisew Guthrie Limited Partnership (MGLP), continues to be a leader in the industry and engaged in core values of operational excellence, safety performance and giving back to our community.
