After years of dedication to building a strong company with an Aboriginal workforce, Points Athabasca has been recognized for their efforts. In November 2011 at the Chamber of Commerce ABEX Award Gala, Points Athabasca was the proud recipient of the ABEX Aboriginal Business Partnership Award. This award is presented to a business that has demonstrated leadership and commitment to the growth of Aboriginal business in Saskatchewan.

Points Athabasca is dedicated to creating career opportunities and futures for their employees. They sponsor training initiatives, attend career fairs, and work towards continually growing and improving their business.

“We are very pleased to be part of an exciting economy and province,” says Brad Darbyshire, Manager of Points Athabasca. “Saskatchewan is a national powerhouse with a growing and vibrant business community that fully understands the importance of engaging its Aboriginal community. It is great to see such positive progress and we are looking forward to continued success in our business and the provincial growth. Saskatchewan is truly a great place to be!”

The company recognizes that they did not win this award on their own, and express thanks to their clients: Cameco, Crown Corporations, Areva and Golden Band Resources; their shareholders: Graham Group Ltd and ABDLP; the communities in which they work, and the members of those communities.

Points Athabasca Contracting provides general contracting in the areas of industrial, commercial, skilled workforce supply, concrete products and sales, and road building and maintenance.
