Aboriginal Relations

Progress Energy is dedicated to creating and maintaining mutually supportive relationships with the communities in which it operates. In the natural gas fields of northeast British Columbia, the current communities include First Nations communities of: Halfway River, Prophet River, West Moberly, Saulteau and Blueberry.

Progress Energy focuses on human and business interactions that are grounded in respect, trust and a commitment to enhance the future and traditional well-being of the Aboriginal people and all other communities impacted by its operations.

Progress Energy accomplishes this by:

  • Soliciting feedback to improve cultural awareness and understand treaty rights
  • Sharing development plans with First Nations
  • Maintaining an in-depth consultation process in regards to upcoming projects
  • Supporting First Nation Economic Opportunities
  • Building economic, social and business paths for Aboriginal people to find jobs, establish and sustain businesses, and participate in joint ventures
