Chair's Message 2016 Annual Report

I am proud of the achievements the Tahltan Development Corporation (TNDC) has made this year to continue to build on our 30-year history as a financially sustainable organization. Although there is no question 2016 was a challenging year resulting from low world commodity prices and lack of investor confidence, TNDC remained focused on building our internal and external capacity, with an eye to ensuring when the economy does turn around, and it will, we are positioned to capitalize on the new opportunities.

Chair's Message 2015 Annual Report

The leaders of the generation before us believed in a vision and worked together, embarking on a concept to allow our Nation to prosper. This vision and commitment has repeatedly been embraced by consecutive Tahltan leaders, many of whom have continued to work with TNDC at the leadership and board level, and who have each contributed to advancing TNDC’s goals and capabilities. It was not the effort of one, but a sum of the contributions of many.

TNDC is an amazing organization with many strengths and tremendous growth potential. TNDC and the Tahltan have a reputation for quality, hard work and fairness throughout BC and beyond, and we have a dedicated and professional staff.

  • TNDC is successful because of the dedicated staff and skilled workers. The support of the Tahltan leaders and the TNDC board is crucial to the success of the company. Being President of TNDC has been the most rewarding job in my career. I look forward to my continuing involvement with all of the staff.

  • Ledcor recognized the benefits offered through the Tahltan’s local expertise and experience, and welcomed the opportunity to involve community members in projects. We established Tahltan-Ledcor Joint Venture back in 1991 when we managed construction on the Eskay Creek mine. We value the partnership with TNDC and look forward to the opportunities ahead within Tahltan traditional territory.

    Past Business Development & Aboriginal Relations Manager, Ledcor
  • We worked with TNDC on the Galore Creek mining project and the Northwest Transmission Line, providing heavy lift helicopter services. It made good business sense to get involved with the Nation, so we formed Tahltan Helifor Joint Venture in 2011. After meeting Bill Adsit, I knew we had made the right decision. We have had only positive experiences and look forward to continued collaboration.
    Gary Laidlaw
    President & General Manager, Helifor Canada Corp.
  • Sodexo Canada has been a partner with TNDC since 2002, providing complete camp management through Spatsizi Remote Services. During this time we have worked on many projects, and employed many Tahltan members. It’s been very positive, and the business relationships have formed long lasting personal and business friendships.
    Ivor MacGregor
    Vice President, Operations, Sodexo Canada Ltd.
  • We’ve completed a number of projects though our FrontierMEDEX Tahltan Ltd. partnership since we became a partner back in 2007. It’s been extremely positive. TNDC has been terrific to work with and we’re looking forward to continuing to build the business partnership.
    Ryan Steil
    Past General Manger, Canada, FrontierMEDEX Canada Ltd.
  • TNDC is a great place to work. The atmosphere in the office is friendly, open, and honest, and there is always humour and laughter. I like that TNDC maintains an active approach of hiring locally and offers training within that position. Employees are highly encouraged and supported to advance professionally, which ripples into advancing personally as well.
