Mikisew GIR is a department of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. Our job is to advocate for the protection of Mikisew’s rights, people and environment. We represent the interests of Mikisew through engagement with all levels of government and industry as it relates to land, water, wildlife and the community.
Mikisew GIR was established in January 2001 as a department of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. Directed by Chief and Council, we act as liaison between resource developers, operators, governments and the community. Mikisew GIR is the primary vehicle to bring the Mikisew Nation to the table as an equal participant in resource development, and ensures the Nation is meaningfully consulted.
Mikisew Group is the distinct business entity of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. It was created in 1991 to separate our business and political branches, and has become a leading oil sands partner specializing in site services, maintenance, logistics and construction.
