Sustainability Department

The Sustainability Department oversees Fort McKay’s interaction with the oil sands industry in every respect except commercial enterprises. That is, the department helps to negotiate impact benefit agreements, supervises community engagement and public consultation efforts associated with natural resource development and Crown land decisions, monitors environmental impacts within the traditional territory to ensure industry complies with protection obligations and oversees several regulatory activities. The department is also responsible for government relations associated with resource development and Crown land management.

Specific activities in which the department is engaged include water quality and air quality monitoring, monitoring other industrial impacts on the environment, cumulative effects, and environmental research.

The department is dedicated to building greater efficiency and community access to environmental and regulatory information and services while continuing Fort McKay First Nation’s longstanding tradition of relationship building with the oil sands industry for the betterment of the entire community.
