The company behind the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline has received silver-level certification from the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business.
Calgary-based Enbridge is the first pipeline company in the country to receive the progressive aboriginal relations certification, which is based on employment of aboriginals, business development, community investment and community engagement.
“We appreciate the acknowledgment of this certification for our progress in creating real economic benefits for aboriginal communities that we’re involved with, at the same time as gaining access to labour pools,” Enbridge spokesman Todd Nogier said. “We believe that our activities in these communities are very much of mutual benefit.”
The certification, which has gold, silver and bronze levels, is valid for three years after which time Enbridge must re-submit its application.
