Having successfully and respectfully worked with First Nations across Western Canada, IRWIN'S offers you proven experience to achieve your goals.
IRWIN'S Safety operates its businesses near and throughout First Nations land in Canada. As such, it is our responsibility to improve the amount of economic value generated by industry in these communities that stays within the community. We endeavor to do so by leveraging our core competencies to train, hire, and mentor the local workforce.
Our approach to each community is necessarily different, as each community has its own values, beliefs, and needs. Despite this, our core competencies can be leveraged to deliver results set around three pillars of success:
Our commitment to First Nations begins with our training capabilities, which allows us to offer opportunities for employment to members of First Nations in remote communities. This ability to offer training for the services we provide allows us to identify students showing promise and directly offer them project employment. Be it entry-level worker, emergency services, or safety advisory, our trainers bring the students who shine to us and recommend them for direct employment. By employing these tactics, we are able to achieve positive outcomes for the Nation, our clients, and our business - which are mutually exclusive but also synergistic.
