The Indigenous Engagement Award was sponsored by GuildOne which recognizes an organization or national indigenous community that has demonstrated best efforts and success in engaging consultation, business development opportunities or community development. The winner of the 2018 Indigenous Engagement Award went to Pimee Well Servicing LP because it is not only First Nation owned, but 94% of their employees are indigenous and members of local communities.
Pimee Well Services is not only owned by six First Nations: Beaver Lake Cree Nation, Frog Lake First Nation, Heart Lake First Nation, Kehewin Cree Nation, Saddle Lake Cree Nation and Whitefish (Goodfish) Lake First Nation but they also vested in building on its strengths and maximizing opportunities with their partnerships in the oil industry. They also reinvest back into each community to help support community well-being and to improve the quality of life for their people. Today, Pimee Well Services has fourteen rigs and 125 full time employees and has succeeded to create employment for member Shareholder Nations in which 92% of the employees come from surrounding Aboriginal communities.
