FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Doig River First Nation member Micheal Acko has used his success as an entrepreneur to give back to the Indigenous communities that have supported him on his journey.

The current owner, President and CEO of Scott Hydro-Vac and EnviroBore Directional Drilling, was recently named a recipient of this year’s Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 award for his success as a businessman and his commitment to Indigenous peoples.

The 39-year-old has contributed over $15 million throughout his career to various Indigenous communities and local municipalities through revenues shares, donations and sponsorships. He has also actively tried to employ First Nations members and is now looking to give back in other ways.

With his newfound platform, Acko wants to hone in on men’s mental health and wellness with a workshop in Fort St. John next year.
