First Nation Development

First Nation Involvement & Indigenous Relations

As a leader in mechanical and electrical services since 2001, DMS has developed a reputation as an industry leader for Indigenous inclusion by developing strong partnerships and Joint Ventures, based on trust, that provide economic prosperity, social well-being, and respect for the communities and land where we work.

We believe that responsible business activity involves meaningful inclusion and a deep respect for Indigenous cultures and values.  Trust is not something that we take for granted.  We take the time to earn it by making good on our commitments and working directly with the leadership of communities beyond our construction expertise.

Initiatives that focus on youth mental health, education and skill development through partnerships with Live Different (www.livedifferent.ca), and by developing our own apprenticeship programs are among some of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to the communities where we work.

DMS is honored to be collaborating and partnering with First Nations on their traditional territories across Western Canada.

First Nation Involvment in Project Development

In 2017, Indigenous businesses, communities and organizations will continue to demonstrate their vital importance for the development of strong communities and for the future of a sustainable Canadian economy.

At DMS, our goal is to provide First Nation, Metis, and Inuit businesses and organizations with clear and accurate product and service information about how your First Nation can become involved and benefit from our services.  Mechanical and electrical services are necessary for nearly every project that affects First Nation communities and their traditional territories.  This includes Industrial developments, power generation, substation construction, mining, metallurgy, oil and gas infrastructure and operations, maintenance and emergency response, to name a few.

In an effort to help make informed decisions about becoming more involved in projects requiring mechanical and electrical service, we are excited to announce the launch of a new website that we hope will assist Aboriginal communities, businesses and organizations plan for continued prosperity in the New Year.  We are committed to be the industry leader for Indigenous inclusion in the energy sector.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to learn how your community or business can become more involved in projects on your traditional territory.
