Working Collaboratively with First Nations

North Coal acknowledges that its proposed project is within the asserted traditional territory of the Ktunaxa Nation and may also be of interest to other Bands and Nations.  

North Coal is committed to working with the leadership and knowledge-holders of the Ktunaxa Nation regarding their interests, concerns, values and policy objectives.  As a company, North Coal values innovation through partnership and has committed the resources to collaborate with the Ktunaxa Nation.

North Coal recently entered into an engagement agreement with the Ktunaxa Nation Council to establish a reliable process and framework for the Ktunaxa to participate in the proposed Michel Coal Project.   We recognize our obligation to inform and involve the Ktunaxa in our proposed mining project in a transparent and respectful manner that addresses their traditional, cultural, economic and social values and interests.
