First Nation Relations
Radium believes that our relationship with the Indigenous communities we work with is more than just a percentage on a contract. At Radium we have a strong belief of empowering the local Indigenous communities, because the communities are an untapped resource that include skill and creativity, as well as being an integral part of our national framework. Such empowerment includes but is not limited to, community outreach programs, trade skill advancement, and helping Indigenous communities to effectively manage their own business ventures in the oil and gas industry. We have created strong relationships with the Indigenous communities that we have partnered within Western Canada such as Western Cree Tribal Council, Doig River First Nation and Samson Cree Nation. We have several other communities we are working on closing at this time. Radium has been able to work effectively with these communities on many of our projects bringing them sustainable employment and business opportunities.
Radium strives to further our relationship with the First Nations of Northeastern, B.C. and plans to demonstrate such a commitment by having a joint venture with the Doig River First Nation in Fort St. John, B.C. and its surrounding areas.By doing this, we plan on continuing to have critical conversations on important issues and providing solutions to ensure long-term relationships with the Indigenous Peoples of Western Canada.
