Wyloo is unwavering in our commitment to responsible practices that includes active engagement with First Nation communities and the establishment of enduring partnerships that will lead us into the future.

Our approach also incorporates First Nation communities as integral co-leaders in business ventures. Our aim is to foster opportunities for Indigenous-owned and led businesses to meaningfully participate in the economic benefits stemming from the Eagle’s Nest Project – from pre-construction activities through to operations and beyond – in addition to opportunities arising as development progresses in the region.

We also endeavour to assist with access to capital and providing practical business support, including capacity building.

The Indigenous Enterprises Business Development Opportunities Workshop held in November 2023
was a first in a series of workshops to help facilitate these initiatives.

The workshop brought together members of First Nation communities, industry leaders and
partners, government representatives and the Wyloo team from Thunder Bay and Toronto.

Businesses and enterprises from across Canada were able to share their first-hand experiences and success stories, highlighting the importance of collaboration in every step of the process.

We received great feedback from our participants and are grateful to all who attended.

The series will continue with workshops being planned later this year in the Spring and Fall. For more
information, please contact Glenn Nolan or Ryan Tuomi.
