Aboriginal Community Relations
Aureus Energy is committed to promoting Aboriginal Involvement in the areas which we and our clients operate. We believe the communities should benefit from the economic activity occurring on reserve, and traditional land use areas. Aureus strives to increase First Nations participation in our operations.

In partnership with the Grande Prairie Regional College we have made available several awards for First Nations to continue and enhance their post-secondary schooling
