We are excited to announce our newest indigenous relationship, with Dena Nezziddi Corporation. Challenger has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Dena Nezziddi, the economic development arm of the Ross River Dena Council (RRDC), which is a Kaska Nation in Ross River, Yukon. Challenger and Dena Nezziddi will operate under the MOU while we work toward a formal Joint Venture Agreement, generating income for Dena Nezziddi and job opportunities for Ross River Citizens.
We are excited to announce our newest indigenous partnership, a majority aboriginal-owned joint venture between Challenger Geomatics Ltd. and Chief Isaac Inc. The new joint venture was officially announced on November 20th, 2017 during a partnership-themed breakfast on the sidelines of the Yukon Geoscience Conference in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.
Canada’s north is famous for its extreme environment and the stories it spawns. For E. Grubens Transport and Inukshuk Geomatics, an aboriginal majority-owned partnership between the Inuvialuit Development Corporation and Challenger Geomatics Ltd., building the most northerly 60 kilometres of the 120-kilometre Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk highway gives rise to its own stories.
In the spirit of our long-standing commitment to engage with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples, we are proud to announce the creation of a new Indigenous Relations Lead role at Challenger Geomatics. Building on our successful history of business partnerships and project work with Indigenous Peoples and on their lands, the new role will also focus on strengthening ties and adding value for our clients and partners such as growing local capacity and employment opportunities, utilizing Indigenous businesses and seeking out other opportunities for mutual benefit.
