Indigenous and Community Relations
Total Energy Services Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively “Total”) have a long history of engagement with local and Indigenous communities in areas where Total operates. This engagement includes a commitment to hiring and procuring goods and services locally where possible and formal business partnerships and marketing alliances with several Indigenous communities across western and northern Canada and the northwestern USA.
Such engagement not only provides benefits to local and Indigenous communities, but it also benefits Total and its customers.
Local and Indigenous communities benefit through training and employment opportunities for their citizens, direct and indirect economic benefits arising from local investment and industry activity and direct input into how industry operates so as to minimize any negative impacts of resource development on their communities and environment.
Our customers benefit from the provision of high quality service and equipment from an established and reputable provider as well as from increased awareness and acceptance of their undertakings by local and Indigenous communities.
Dale Swampy, an Indigenous Relations representative for Total and President of the National Coalition of Chiefs, plays a key role in furthering our collective goals. Below are some recent interviews and publications involving Mr. Swampy.
