PTI Group and Saddle Lake Cree Nation
Sign Memorandum of Understanding


PTI Group announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Saddle Lake Cree Nation. The announcement follows the recent announcement of an exclusive business relationship and strategic alliance agreement with Driftpile Cree Nation.

Saddle Lake Cree Nation is located 180 km northeast of Edmonton and has an on-reserve population of 5,800, making it the second most populated First Nation in Alberta. Since April 2010, PTI and the Nation have collaborated very closely on employment opportunities and to date, PTI has hired over 80 members from the Nation. The memorandum of understanding formalizes the collaboration and will also explore new workforce accommodations projects in the vicinity of Saddle Lake. In addition to employment opportunities, PTI will ensure that local businesses are informed of contractual opportunities.

“By creating sustainable employment for our membership, PTI has directly contributed to the long term benefits of the individuals, families and the community as a whole,” says Chief Eddie Makokis, and continues, “Our members are becoming empowered through the process of employment.

They have become contributing members of society and a strong voice of support and encouragement for others in the community. I look forward to working with PTI even more closely as I am positive it will bring great opportunities for us. “
PTI Group has built a strong reputation as an industry leader providing quality of life for those working in remote areas.  Having formed several successful joint ventures and alliances with Aboriginal communities across Canada, PTI takes a principled approach to ensure the relationships meet the needs of all involved.
