About Us

Tsawout and Industra Building a Community Together

Ⱦetćele ICC Construction Corporation is a majority-owned Indigenous-based partnership owned by Tsawout First Nation and by Industra Construction Corp.
Ⱦetćele is a First Nations name for the kingfisher bird.

Partnership with a Purpose

Creating a Sustainable Future

The primary purpose of the partnership is to generate self-sufficiency through training programs and the creation of jobs. At the core is a desire to look ahead seven generations. That means creating a sustainable future for young people within the nation of approximately 1,400.

Community Infrastructure Development

This partnership will also help in building infrastructure within the nation community including a water and wastewater treatment plant, subdivisions, single and multi-family homes, a firehall, schools, recreational facilities and healthcare facilities.

First Nations Construction Opportunities

In addition to bidding on  construction opportunities which are first made available to First Nations corporations, we will also be able to bid on federal government construction projects "set aside" for Aboriginal companies, under the Procurement Set-Aside Program.
