Indigenous Relations Consultant
Randy began building relationships with First Nations communities and teaching his crews about First Nations Culture while working as Construction Superintendent. Two years later, this aspect of his work had grown to the point that he became Penn West's Senior Aboriginal Relations Representative. When he started in that role, the company only had 2 Aboriginal vendors on its approved vendor list, and projects were sometimes delayed due to a lack of engagement with Aboriginal communities. Over the last 3 years, Randy has led his team in building positive relationships with every First Nations community in Treaties 6, 7, and 8, as well as all 3 Metis settlements. He has also worked closely with multiple First Nations communities to help recruit, develop and train new Aboriginal vendors and contractors on oil and gas industry-approved vendor list. This included providing support in developing vendor safety programs and obtaining COR certification and approvals. I have also provided training and compliance monitoring to ensure adherence to corporate policies, safety and environmental regulations and industry standards.
Creating work for Alberta's First Nations and Metis communities, involving communities in Penn West's projects from the outset, and teaching Penn West's employees and contractors to understand and respect First Nations treaties and culture has virtually eliminated conflicts, roadblocks and delays for Penn West's projects. Equally important, our Aboriginal vendors and contractors have an excellent safety record, with no lost-time incidents on Penn West's projects.
Randy is well respected by both Penn West's field personnel and the Aboriginal vendors and contractor. He also has a good relationship with leaders and elders within all 30 First Nations communities and the 3 Metis settlements in Northern Alberta and Northeastern British Columbia.
