As the oil sands industry continues to expand, the need for a better understanding of the economic and community goals of Aboriginal peoples in the communities where we operate is clear.

OSCA is committed to partnering with Aboriginal communities to ensure shared benefits of economic growth. Through enhanced relationships with Aboriginal communities we will improve awareness of priorities and concerns and collaboratively develop solutions that are mutually beneficial.

Across the region, Aboriginal workers are making significant contributions in leadership, production, construction, and support services to the oil sands. Aboriginal-owned businesses have become an integral part of our industry over the past four decades.

OSCA is working steadily to enhance these relationships, forge new partnerships and maximize opportunities for continued Aboriginal participation in economic and socio-economic development in the region.
