First Nations

Progressive Ventures has been working with First Nations groups since its inception in 1973.  We have strong working relationships with most local groups, complete many projects for them, have MOU's for working together, have formal joint ventures and limited partnerships and hire many First Nations to work in various positions within Progressive Ventures.

One of our cornerstone values is local procurement and hiring.  Due to the nature of where we work, simply by virtue of who lives there, by default we regularly purchase from First Nations groups and hire First Nations employees


Our formal partnerships include:

  • Limited Partnership with the Haisla Nation for construction work in the Haisla Territory (Kitimat area)
  • Limited Patnership with Tahltan Nation Development Corporation (TNDC) for work in Tahltan Territory (Dease Lake area)
  • Limited Partnership with Coast Tsimshian Enterprises (the business development arm of the Lax Kw'alaams and Metlakatla Bands) for work in the Prince Rupert area
  • Joint Venture with the Kitselas Band for heavy civil work in Kitselas Territory (Terrace area)

I worked with PVL on a project retrofitting two three storey apartment buildings containing 44 suites. The retrofit involved stripping the buildings down to the framing and completely refinishing. PVL came to this project at a difficult time after it had been abandoned part way through and left in disarray. By being well organized and efficient PVL was able to get the project moving again for a reasonable cost and within a fairly short time frame.
