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)

Scope of the project was adding 11,500 sq ft of new facility in addition to an inside / outside renovation of 21,000 sq ft of existing building.  The final result was a most impressive modernized dealership that was completed 30 days ahead of schedule and on budget.
