Businesses

Invested in Our Future

Privately Owned Business

There are many successful entrepreneurs from Fort McKay who have started and grown their own businesses. FMFN is proud of their achievements and would like to see them develop as they are a key part of the local economy. They are referred to as Independent Businesses because they are not owned or operated by FMFN.

It is important for industry to understand that these businesses are not part of FMFN’s Nation Owned Companies and therefore:

› Are owned and/or operated by entrepreneurs who are from Fort McKay
› FMFN has no ownership interest
› FMFN has no financial interest
› FMFN has no operational input
