Being good neighbours starts with respect, communication and trust.


ENMAX operates distribution, transmission and generation facilities in the traditional territory of the Treaty Seven Nations: the Tsuut'ina, Siksika, Kainai, Pikani and Stoney-Nakoda, and in the Metis Nation of Alberta Region 3.

We recognize that community, relationships and trust are the cornerstones of Indigenous communities and we believe that collaboration and partnership requires respect, continuous and open dialogue and a willingness to listen, learn and take action. We strive to find meaningful ways to work with Indigenous peoples.

In addition to engagement and consultation with Indigenous communities for proposed and existing facilities, we also seek to understand each community's unique needs and their deep connections to the land. Our guiding principles — respect, communication and trust— are instrumental in developing open, honest relationships with Indigenous communities. We strive to engage early, often, and on an ongoing basis to support Indigenous communities achieve their development goals. We have provided opportunities for ENMAX team members to participate in Indigenous education and awareness to further enhance understanding of these communities.

We will continue to involve Indigenous communities where we operate and make investments that support Indigenous communities in valuable ways that matter to them and honour leaders, women and youth who make a difference in the community.

Sponsorship and community investment in Indigenous communities

We look to support the economic and social development of Indigenous communities. As one of our focus areas, we support education programs that assist Indigenous Peoples in advancing the knowledge and skills and that celebrate Indigenous culture. This includes providing scholarship opportunities for Indigenous students.​

Our increased focus on essential needs support across Alberta also includes an Indigenous focus. Funding was directed to the Tsuut’ina Food Bank, the Aboriginal Friendship Centre of Calgary, the United Way of Central Alberta’s Lights On Fund (which benefits the Red Deer Native Friendship Society), and to Edmonton’s Bissell Centre Community Bridge Program (which supports Bent Arrow).

ENMAX team members built and donated 25 bikes to Tsuut’ina Nation and Centre for Newcomers kids as part of a community give back event in 2022.

ENMAX team members have volunteered their time in Indigenous communities, including the Tsuut’ina Annual Celebration and sponsorship of the Tsuut’ina Rodeo and Powwow.
