Halfway River CDN Controls
In September 2015, we signed our first formal Indigenous partnership agreement with Halfway River First Nation, a community located 75 km northwest of Fort St. John, British Columbia. Together, we created Halfway River CDN Controls Ltd., a majority-owned Indigenous business with Halfway River Group of Companies. This venture Nation reflects our commitment to collaborating with Indigenous communities in four key areas: Relationship Building, Business Development and Partnerships, Community Investment, and Employment.
Since its inception, Halfway River CDN Controls Ltd. has been recognized across British Columbia by business groups and non-profits as an excellent example of economic reconciliation between industry and Indigenous peoples. Currently, the company employees Halfway River First Nation and West Moberly First Nation community members. Additionally, the organization has also focused on delivering drivers training to Indigenous students at North Peace Secondary High School, helping youth from multiple communities in the Northeast British Columbia obtain their driver’s licenses.
