Message From CEO

Steel River’s Governing Principles are deeply rooted in Indigenous values, beliefs, and culture. Our foundation is grounded by a strong sense of community, centered around people and relationships. We aspire to be thought and action leaders for positive change in the space where Steel River Owned Entities, Indigenous Communities, and industry collaborate. Our underlying mandate is to drive employment for local Indigenous and partnering communities, as we strongly believe that employment and education are essential for positive social, cultural, and economic change.


At Steel River, positive change is driven by our dedicated team who, through various Steel River Owned Entities, embody our Governing Principles to foster meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities and Alliance Partners.


Our Governing Principles include our vision, values, why, and three commitments to Indigenous communities: Steel River will reclaim the process of collaborative engagement, foster the preservation of cultural and traditional values, and champion social sovereignty and economic sustainability for our people.


Steel River is reimagining how, as a privately held Indigenous company, we define, create, and capture value for our people, communities, and partners.
