Building on Success

Fort McMurray 468 First Nation Economic Development is an evolution of the momentum and growth created by the Fort McMurray First Nation Group of Companies.

Since 1987, the Group of Companies has been contributing to the financial stability and prosperity of the Nation – providing Construction, Custodial, Transportation, and Petro-Canada Fuel & Convenience Store services to a broad portfolio of customers. Their success in establishing strong partnerships across a wide range of sectors has created meaningful employment opportunities for Nation Members and additional service lines to the Group of Companies.

Working together with the Nation’s new Economic Development team, the Group of Companies will continue to focus on growing its existing services.
