Terracon and Infinity Métis Corporation (a subsidiary of McMurray Métis) are pleased to announce a formal partnership to provide services in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB). This new partnership will allow both organizations to work together to offer a diverse scope of geoscience, geotechnical, and related field services to both industry and government. Both Terracon and Infinity Métis leadership have extensive industry and local expertise and are committed to working together to promote local employment and training opportunities for McMurray Métis membership while also investing in the community.
Infinity Métis Corporation is a locally Métis owned and operated company that is a part of the Métis Nation of Alberta. With regulatory support and engagement, Infinity Métis Corporation and McMurray Métis represent a community of over 600 members. Infinity Métis Corporation has an active and knowledgeable base of representatives that currently work and volunteer within the grass roots level of the local Indigenous community. Infinity Métis Corporation was created as a means of generating revenues for McMurray Métis. Their vision is to support the Métis people of the RMWB in community, business and the social well being for today, and tomorrow.

The situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve; our top priority continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our people, their families and the communities in which we serve.
Terracon is committed to following the guidelines established by both federal and provincial government agencies. We are doing our part and encourage all our staff to help "flatten the curve". Over the last few years, Terracon has made significant investments in people and technology to ensure operational reliability. Workers that are able to work from home do so and are supported by cloud-based systems and a secure IT infrastructure. For our field staff, we continue to promote safe work practices, using appropriate "physical distancing", as well as sound sanitization practices. We are doing this in partnership with our clients and our other stakeholders. We are proud to be able to continue to support our clients during these difficult times.
We would like to recognize the contributions of our entire Terracon team who are living our SITE (Safety, Integrity, Teamwork, and Entrepreneurism) values every day to ensure Terracon is able to continue operations and support our clients and industry stakeholders. We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to all front line and essential workers across the country who are working tirelessly to keep us all safe and supported. We are confident that Canada's collective efforts are having a positive impact and we will continue to do our part.
