CALGARY, AB – We are excited to announce that CEDA and Chard Metis Dene Inc. (CMD) have partnered together to launch a new joint venture, CMD CEDA Fluid Solutions.
The majority Indigenous-owned joint venture was created to provide dredging, pumping, fluid management and dewatering system services to a leading energy company and to pursue similar opportunities within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB).
This partnership aligns with CEDA’s commitment to foster Indigenous inclusion through employment, community investment and business opportunities. A share of the profits will be allocated to the hamlet of Janvier in the RMWB to help build infrastructure that will benefit the residents of the community. In addition, this joint venture will provide career opportunities for community members and offer them the opportunity to develop skills and experience that will provide for their families for generations to come.
CMD is the economic development entity for the Chard Metis Community Association. All proceeds from CMD go towards cultural and social programs for the community and its members.
CEDA specializes in providing industrial maintenance, turnaround and environmental services to clients in the oil and gas, pipeline, power, pulp and paper, chemical, mining, municipal and steel markets. With offices throughout North America, CEDA delivers more than 120 distinct services to support critical operations at its clients’ facilities. CEDA is committed to delivering world-class solutions through innovative technologies, equipment and processes, always with safety top of mind.
