SITE brings the same commitment to every project we work on – We take care of our people and the environment on and off the job site. This means partnering with local communities to create local opportunities. It means safe choices to protect people where they work, live, and play. It means sustainable practices and minimal disturbance to protect our environment.
SITE spends a lot of time in the communities and areas where we work. We take the time to get to know the communities and people, and collaborate locally to create exciting and beneficial opportunities. We are partners with local businesses. We are an economic engine for communities. We are a source of safe and enjoyable work for residents. We are community builders.
Indigenous engagement is an integral part of our business – we regularly partner with local businesses and hire project staff in the communities that we are active in.
As partners, our goal is to create opportunities and ensure sustainability that will last far beyond each project. To do this, we aim to build strong, ongoing relationships.
We want dialogue and commitments to be transparent, meaningful, and beneficial. We want to support the goals and interests of our business and community partners. We want to be well-prepared to respond to time sensitive project bids and hire team members for upcoming projects.
Our Indigenous Relations Policy continues to evolve in support of the Federal Government’s commitment to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

SITE is a proud member of the NorthEastern Alberta Aboriginal Business Association, an organization committed to making introduction, encouraging relationships, and building understanding between industry and Indigenous communities.
SITE projects aim to further establish and build socio-economic opportunities in our partner communities. We want to develop enduring, legacy capacity in the communities impacted by projects and to ensure Indigenous peoples and business receive as much socio-economic benefit as possible. This means:
