First Nations

Sector Overview

TBT Engineering has completed hundreds of engineering and related technical assignments for more than 60 different First Nation communities across Canada’s Far North. This experience has helped fostered a portfolio of industry leading services that TBT Engineering utilizes across First Nation sectors ranging from education and health care to infrastructure and community development.

Recently, TBT Engineering expanded its presence in a big way with various Aboriginal stakeholder groups via the formulation of a new First Nations owned company called Ozaanaman Engineering Incorporated.

This new company, with its Aboriginal ownership component and related community partnerships, gives TBT Engineering the opportunity to bolster service offerings to First Nation communities that will not only employ more community members, but will also continue to be industry leading in terms of professionalism, dedication, efficiency and respect while emphasizing traditional & environmental considerations.
