At Fort McKay Alcor, we’re energized by our Aboriginal heritage and want to do everything we can for the community that sustains us. That’s why we lend our support to local initiatives that enrich us all.
How we’re engaging with the community
AWAKE Cultural Camp Series
Fort McKay Alcor founded and supports the AWAKE Cultural Camp Series, which involves teaching and preserving Indigenous culture through hands-on fishing, hunting and trapping wilderness camps.
Annual Aboriginal Trades Scholarship
Each year, we award scholarships to students pursuing a career in the trades industry. Valued at $1000 each, the scholarships are granted to graduating Aboriginal students who have been accepted into an accredited trade school to pursue plumbing, refrigeration, electrical, millwright or carpentry.
Aboriginal Entrepreneurship
Through Father Mercredi High School, Fort McKay Alcor sponsors students who express an interest in business and entrepreneurship. As part of the Aboriginal Entrepreneurship program, we organize “sales days” where students sell products or services, and conduct analyses before and after the event.
Ongoing Community Support
We also support numerous community events and initiatives in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo through financial, gift-in-kind, and volunteer contributions.
