Black & McDonald’s Enduring Commitment to Indigenous Communities

At Black & McDonald, we are committed to partnering with Indigenous communities across Canada, a commitment that is deeply woven into our operations and core values. We focus on providing equal opportunities for meaningful work, fostering a respectful work environment based on integrity, personal fulfillment, and trust. Our dedication to diversity in the contracting industry helps create an inclusive workplace culture, empowering everyone to reach their full potential and contribute to the success of our customers, employees, and the communities we serve.

Indigenous Partnerships: Collaboration and Growth

One of our most successful collaborations is with Acden, resulting in the formation of Acden Base Operators (ABO). This partnership exemplifies how teamwork can lead to mutual success. ABO’s expertise in airfield support and oil sands services led to a significant contract at the Suncor Firebag Airport in Alberta, positioning ABO as a leader in aerodrome services. This collaboration not only benefits Suncor Energy but also supports the economic development of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation.

Expanding Indigenous Services Across Canada

Our commitment to Indigenous communities is also evident in the establishment of Baffin Base Operators (BBO) in Nunavut, providing essential goods and services. Additionally, Dakota Plains First Nation supports the Government of Canada with specialized services, while Emish and Kalluk Base Operators (KBO) offer their expertise in Labrador and the Kitikmeot region. These initiatives highlight our dedication to expanding Indigenous services throughout Canada.

Promoting Economic Growth and Apprenticeship Opportunities

Morningstar Services, an Indigenous-owned company, is a leader in delivering innovative facilities management, construction, and technical solutions. Their focus on contributing to Canadian Indigenous economic growth through sustainable joint ventures and facilitating apprenticeship and career opportunities aligns with our broader mission of empowering Indigenous communities.

Supporting the Government and RCAF Through Partnership

Our partnership with Whitecap Dakota First Nation is a testament to our dedication to supporting the Government of Canada and the Royal Canadian Air Force. This collaboration involves providing program support activities for facility management and site services, including electrical and mechanical project management services and airside crash/fire rescue capabilities.
