Cultural Sensitivity and working with the First Nations 

Hey everyone, we hope you’ve been well and are enjoying the warmer spring weather here on the island or wherever you’re reading this from!

This month’s blog is a special one for us. We’ve had the privilege to work with First Nations communities on numerous remote island projects. We have the privilege to work with over 32 indigenous communities across the entire province, and we understand that it takes time to build a certain level of trust, and once you do, word travels fast across the province where you don’t even need to advertise.

We started working with indigenous communities well over 20 years ago and got recommended consistently to various nations, which has been extremely rewarding for us and has flourished into a great, continuous partnership. 

There are many factors to consider when working on these projects, such as understanding the significance of sacred sites and cultural landmarks to Indigenous communities and working within the cultural and community guidelines.

Here are some images of the work we’ve been doing over the years with First Nations communities:

Remote Community Building for the Ahousaht First Nations

Early Morning Sign Installation for Ahous Adventures 

Supporting the First Nation Youth through the Youth Warrior Program

The most rewarding thing for us and our crew is to see the community involvement, meet some amazing people, and, most importantly, see all the smiles and enthusiasm when the projects are done.

We get so much enjoyment from these projects, which is why we are continually making efforts to engage in ongoing learning about Indigenous history and culture to ensure that all of our work fits within the culture.

We understand that there’s a need for new construction and renovations here on the island and remotely, so if you have a project in mind you’re looking to hire a contractor within an Indigenous community, we would welcome the conversation to get the job done.

Thank you for reading this month’s blog; we hope to see you on the next one.
