CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 2, 2012) - ATCO Structures & Logistics is pleased to announce it is working with several Treaty 4 First Nations in the Touchwood area of east-central Saskatchewan to provide workforce housing lodges, camp catering, and services.

The business relationship will be executed in conjunction with an entity comprised of George Gordon First Nation, Day Star First Nation and Kawacatoose First Nation, and will operate in their traditional territories.

"ATCO is excited to be working with the Touchwood Area First Nations in this resource-rich area of Saskatchewan," said Harry Wilmot, President & Chief Operating Officer, ATCO Structures & Logistics. "We have a long-standing tradition of working with Aboriginal communities and businesses and anticipate a productive relationship with these three First Nations. Our goal is to create a mutually beneficial venture that creates employment and training in this community."

"This partnership with ATCO will improve the skills and training of our people and increase our capacity to gain meaningful employment," said Chief Glen Pratt of George Gordon First Nation. "ATCO's strategy supports our transition from a welfare economy to a treaty-based economy," added Pratt.
