Chair's Message - 2018 Annual Report

In past years, TNDC’s business was focussed primarily on major heavy construction and earthworks contracts in the exploration and mine development sectors. The lack of major projects in Tahltan Territory, together with reduced spending on exploration projects impacted TNDC’s business. This served as a revelation that TNDC needed to review and revisit its business model to diversify into other markets. With increased activity in exploration and other sectors over the past two years, TNDC is positioning itself to capitalize on business opportunities.

Chair's Message 2017 Annual Report

It is a pleasure to provide another annual report to the Tahltan membership on TNDC’s strategic priorities. Although the 2016-17 fiscal year continued to present some challenges from the mineral exploration and mining revenue side of TNDC’s business, TNDC realized several accomplishments in our traditional business divisions, advanced new initiatives, and took steps to build a long-term financially sustainable organization.

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.

  • Sodexo Canada has been a partner with TNDC since 2002, providing complete camp management through Spatsizi Remote Services.

  • We formed our Tahltan Aeronigma Geodis Wilson partnership in 2011.

  • 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.

  • 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.
