Indigenous Relations

Forging Genuine Partnerships

IronCreek is privileged to live and work alongside many different and unique Indigenous communities, organizations, and individuals. And we’re committed to doing more for them, however we can. We believe in pursuing partnerships that make a difference, forging long-term connections that are mutually beneficial, and sharing successes in an equitable fashion. Among our key partnerships is our relationship with the Kehewin Cree Nation, with whom we have worked for many years.

A Vision Gained Through Collaboration

In 2024, IronCreek adopted a new Indigenous relations policy. This policy was the product of careful consultation with Indigenous leaders to ensure a fair, accurate, and most of all meaningful document we can use to focus and strengthen our actions moving forward.

We are redoubling our efforts on an individual and organizational level to establish longer-term partnerships with Indigenous groups, councils, and committees to ensure we effect lasting positive change.

Forging Genuine Partnerships

To share responsible business development accounts for Indigenous interests regarding the opportunities and impacts of energy development on communities and on their traditional and current uses of lands and resources.
To ensure Indigenous people and communities affected by our activities have the opportunity to benefit from energy development through opportunities such as employment, business development, or community investment.
To seek ways to improve IronCreek’s strategies and resources specific to the attraction and hiring, retention, and inclusion of Indigenous people within our workforce.
To seek to understand Indigenous perspectives through engagement and dialogue with impacted Indigenous communities and take measures to mitigate the impact of IronCreek’s activities on these communities.
To be responsive to feedback from Indigenous communities where our activities impact the ability to exercise constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights, their way of life, their traditions, and cultures.
