A large part of Summit Camps business is in partnership with Indigenous communities and/or Indigenous organizations. These relationships provide great value to our clients and our organization and we are constantly striving to be the best community partner we can be.
Workforce camps come and go but communities are here to stay. It is foundational in our approach to partnership that community driven outcomes are built into the participation plan for a project so that when the camp moves on there is a legacy that is on-going. This may include transferrable employment skills, businesses and business skills, infrastructure and revenue/profit sharing to drive future economic development opportunities.
When a community works with Summit their leadership meets with our leadership. The page is blank and we decide together what form the collaboration should take to best fit the community’s goals. Our objective is always to achieve maximum benefit for our partners. We do not have a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Our business relationships take a variety of forms and some of the best ideas come from the community.
We have many examples of successful and creative collaborations and would be happy to share ideas and community references with you. We believe long term, healthy relationships are built on trust, honesty and respect and are very proud of our long lasting and mutually beneficial Indigenous partnerships!
