About HS&E
Our HS&E Policy

Aboriginal Relations

Mur-Cal Oilfield was established in 2004 as a 100% aboriginal owned and operated company. During its twelve year history Mur-Cal has quietly developed into a multi-million dollar company and has remained completely aboriginal owned.

Our Mission

Mur-Cal is committed to maintaining a key percentage of aboriginal workers, keeping current working relationships within Aboriginal communities strong and developing new relations with local bands and communities. We also work to enhance community involvement and strive to find new ways to ensure aboriginal traditions stay strong.

Strive to Maintain Aboriginal Workforce

We strive to maintain a workforce that recognizes the need to involve First Nations, Metis and local communities. We involve local and band owned business when practical but more importantly create relationships that allow local employment opportunities. We look to build customer partnerships that align with this core value. We recognize that these relationships work to the advantage of all stakeholders and are based on mutual respect and cooperation between all partners.

A Strong Working Relationship

Mur-Cal Oilfield has a commitment to achieving a strong working relationship with the Aboriginal community. In doing so, we strive to foster a sense of mutual trust and respect while assuring clear, two-way communication.
As a First Nation’s company we promote the use of other First Nation companies on all of our major projects, including equipment and workers. It is of great importance for First Nation members to participate in the development of their traditional lands. We believe working together to help First Nation communities thrive will help ensure growth and opportunity for all.

Community Involvement

Mur-Cal takes pride in contributing to community events, especially those that involve First Nation activities. Over the years we have sponsored many sports teams and activities within many different communities.
