Sponsorship Continues Legacy of Supporting Major Sports Events

YELLOWKNIFE, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2007) - The ATCO Group of Companies and Nunasi Corporation celebrated the pageantry of the upcoming 2008 Arctic Winter Games by wrapping their company buildings in the host city of Yellowknife with colourful sports signage.

Nancy Southern, President and Chief Executive Officer, ATCO Group, said at a ceremony the displays will build enthusiasm for the Games and showcase the corporation's long-standing commitment to both major sporting events and the North.
