CEO's Message

Peter Arendt, P.Eng.

February 2017

Having recently joined TNDC, I want to extend my sincere thanks to all those who have welcomed me to the company.  It is an exciting prospect to join a leading and well respected company such as TNDC.  I have already had the pleasure of meeting many of TNDC’s business partners, customers, suppliers, as well as Tahltan Leadership, members and other important stakeholders.

In January, I was able to meet many of you at Roundup in Vancouver. I appreciate the warm and supportive welcome I have received so far. For those I haven’t yet had a chance to meet, I look forward to meeting you in the coming weeks.

With its long history, strong reputation, extensive experience and local advantage, TNDC is in a unique position to capitalize on the resource, industrial and development activities occurring in Tahltan territory.  We look forward to growing and expanding our services as current projects develop and new opportunities arise.

I look forward to working collectively with all stakeholders to escalate TNDC’s positive contribution to development in Tahltan territory to ensure its long-term sustainable growth.

  • 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.

    Past General Manger, Canada, FrontierMEDEX Canada Ltd.
  • We formed our Tahltan Aeronigma Geodis Wilson partnership in 2011. It’s been an honour to partner with TNDC for the opportunity to provide our wide-range of global logistical services and be a part of a world class organization built on mutual cooperation, trust and respect. They’re a terrific group of educated, business friendly people eager to learn and work with us.
    Adam J. Wickstead
    President, Aeronigma Solutions Inc.
  • We’ve had many projects in Tahltan territory through our Rescan Tahltan Environmental Consultants (RTEC) partnership, and the experience has been excellent. TNDC’s management team has been an honorable and knowledgeable group to work with. They always look at ways to make things work, and we have developed lasting friendships. It’s been an honour to work together.

    former CEO, Rescan Group
  • 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.
    Bill Adsit
    Past President, TNDC
  • 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.
    Rhonda Quock
    Office Manager, TNDC
  • 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.
