Our commitment to Indigenous peoples
As a company operating across North America, EPCOR respectfully acknowledges our work takes place on the territory and traditional lands of many Indigenous peoples. Several of our Canadian operations reside on treaty territory.
Our history is interwoven with the development of Edmonton, the histories and legacies of interaction between settlers and Indigenous peoples, and the siting of our facilities within Edmonton. The banks of the North Saskatchewan River, where both our water treatment plants are located, have been a sacred gathering place since time immemorial.
We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all Indigenous peoples across North America, whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant community.
We also recognize we need to work collaboratively and in the spirit of reconciliation with Indigenous governments and peoples as long as we continue to operate in areas that holds these significant ties.
