Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility


There are three pillars of our approach to social responsibility:


Far from being a Cold Lake First Nations or even an Indigenous organization, Primco Dene employs Canadians with a vast range of backgrounds.

We believe that investing in people should be at the foundation of our corporate social responsibility program. From supporting the development and improvements of road within the nation to helping local women’s shelters to investing in a new ambulance for the Cold Lake Ambulance Society ― we’re proud to make positive impacts in the everyday lives of people from all walks of life.


As an organization wholly owned by Cold Lake First Nations, we are committed to investing in the development of traditional lands, first nations communities and cultural activities in our region.

We are proud to have given back millions of dollars in charitable contributions to the community of Cold Lake First Nations through investments in infrastructure, in education and more.


The oilsands development that provides much of our revenue creates opportunities for our people, but also necessitates that we have a strong commitment to maintaining a healthy environment for future generations.

We have ensured that we work with companies that have strong environmental standards and we have developed a corporate commitment to investing in environmentally responsible initiatives, charities and non-profits.

Program Highlights


Primco Dene was built on a strong sense of culture and social responsibility. We are proud supporters of initiatives throughout the Cold Lake region and beyond. Here are just a few of the many corporate initiatives that we are a part of:


Cold Lake First Nations Administration

The majority of our charitable contributions go towards helping Cold Lake First Nations administer their land and enhance the lives of the members who live here.


Cold Lake Ambulance

Our own expertise in providing emergency services makes Primco Dene the ideal partner to give Cold Lake First Nations a first-class ambulance service.


Blue Quills University

A non-profit education facility, formed from a partnership of seven First Nations communities, that allows people from all backgrounds to experience a unique socio-cultural and academic environment.


Local Non-profits

We work with non-profits and charities across the Cold Lake area to build our community and provide everyone there with better lives. Check our News (link) page to find out about our latest charitable initiatives.

Youth Training Program


At Primco Dene, we believe that youth are our future.  We actively invest in and train young people to be the leaders of tomorrow. Each year we invite our employees to bring their children in to shadow their parent or guardian and learn about what it’s like to work at Primco.

Working closely with Cold Lake First Nations Administration, we are able to bring on summer students each year.  These summer students gain valuable safety training, mentorship and learn skills specific to their job and their intended career path.

Volunteering Program


Helping our neighbours and supporting our communities is an intrinsic part of our culture and our company.  We contribute countless volunteer hours to local causes — from helping to maintain ball diamonds, to providing pro-bono services to local not-for-profits, to volunteering at local Cold Lake Ice hockey games.

We also actively encourage our employees to volunteer with the causes and organizations they care about.
