The Interlake Reserves Tribal Council (IRTC) has just signed a Joint Venture agreement with Sigfusson Northern Ltd supported by all six Member First Nation communities for future construction project considerations.
“We see this signing as a strategic one with the ability to build further capacity and develop meaningful value added economic development for our communities.” Karl Zadnik, CEO for IRTC
The Chairman, Chief Cornell McLean says “that the Lake St Martin Channel is a project that is currently under consultations with the communities of IRTC, and this $350 Million dollar project is important to have the needed capacity to be competitive. We stand by our original statement that we not only want sole sourced contracts and meaningful consultations. We have not consented to this project; however, we are open to discussions and contract considerations from the Province.”
Wade Pluchinske of Sigfusson Northern states, “Sigfusson Northern is excited at the opportunity to work with IRTC and their member communities on upcoming construction projects. These projects have the ability to provide increased employment, training opportunities and business development for the IRTC communities.”
