Local Aboriginal Company Awarded Contract

A $3.1-million contract to operate and maintain a material processing facility for the Sydney Tar Ponds and Coke Ovens cleanup has been awarded to a local aboriginal company.
Mikjikj Enterprises Ltd., of Eskasoni and Harbour Tech Services Inc., of Sydney, Joint Venture has been awarded the multi-year contract as part of the Aboriginal Set-aside Procurement Strategy signed in 2008 by the government of Canada, province of Nova Scotia, and Membertou, on behalf of five First Nations communities of Cape Breton.
The facility will begin operations in October and run until the cleanup is complete. The contract includes decommissioning the building.
Set-aside contracts provide companies with majority aboriginal ownership and control an opportunity to benefit from the cleanup work. As well, it provides aboriginal workers with the hands-on training needed to compete for construction projects outside the cleanup.
