Environmental and Engineering Limited Partnerships – The Na-Cho Nyak Dun and EBA Experience
EBA Engineering Consultants Ltd. (EBA) and Na-Cho Nyak Dun Development Corporation (NND DC) have announced the formation of a Limited Partnership Company called NND EBA Land Protection Corporation. NND DC holds a majority interest in the limited partnership.
The primary goal of the Limited Partnership is to maximize business and employment opportunities associated with providing Environmental and Engineering Services in the Traditional Territory of Na-Cho Nyak Dun First Nation.
“Our partnership is a perfect example of how the First Nation of Na-Cho Nyak Dun is creating new business opportunities and partnerships that protect our lands” stated Albert Peter, Chairman of the Na-Cho Nyak Dun Development Corporation. “All of our business activities are guided by the values, culture and traditions held by our citizens.”
“EBA has a long-standing track record of working with and for Yukon’s First Nation governments and development corporations,” said EBA President Paul Ruffell. “This partnership will serve to further our relationship with the Na-cho Nyak Dun First Nation while bringing additional opportunities to both NND DC and EBA and helping NND DC reach its’ goals of maximizing development in the mining, renewable energy and real estate industries.”
