Business
​Hiring local businesses and sourcing local contract services, including Aboriginal businesses, is an important part of how we do business. We believe support of local and Aboriginal business is a key part of meeting our labour and service needs and strengthening local economies in our operating areas.

Since 2009, we’ve spent almost $1.8 billion doing business with local and Aboriginal companies in our operating areas. Our overall company capital spend was reduced in 2015, accounting for a reduced Aboriginal business spend total. However, our Aboriginal business spend as a percentage of capital spend increased in 2015 to more than 17 percent, a reflection of our increased effort to engage Aboriginal suppliers as well as the growing number of qualified businesses.
