The Tsleil-Waututh Nation is a progressive and vibrant Coast Salish community of approximately 500 members located along the shores of the Burrard Inlet in North Vancouver, BC. Lori Simcox is a Senior Project Manager for TWN Economic Development. She has attended the last three ABM’s.
As a result of ABM 2013, the Tsleil-Waututh Nation made new partnerships with Levelton Consultants, B & D Excavating, and Britco. The agreement with B & D Excavating was announced before the end of the conference, and was a perfect example of how appointments can turn into solid deals.
Other partnerships formed as a result of ABM include Domcor Health, Safety & Security Inc. and Eagle West Cranes.
“ABM is an invaluable way for us to facilitate partnerships. One of the biggest benefits of ABM is meeting new companies in an environment that is successful for business. The exhibitors come specifically to meet with First Nations, so you know they value doing business with you,” said Simcox.
At ABM BC 2014, TWN Economic Development met several companies that will be beneficial for future work within the construction industry.
“We are looking forward to hearing about exciting new economic development and investment opportunities at ABM West in 2015.”
