CAHILL & ENBRIDGE / AB Energy
Enbridge’s Edmonton Terminal (ONGG)
To ensure that Cahill reached the Indigenous inclusion percentage mandated by the client, Cahill’s procurement department and the DHIR team worked together to bring about the best possible outcomes for all involved.
After connecting with local First Nation communities, businesses and organizations, Cahill’s procurement department utilized our Indigenous supplier database and actively sought out Indigenous businesses for inclusion in the bidding process. We assisted those businesses in the approval process and created the workforce reporting form for detailed reporting.
The Indigenous procurement spend far exceeded the set targets and there was 67% Indigenous procurement rate on the project. The client has demonstrated ongoing philanthropic actions and involvement in the local community.
