Opportunities Surrounding Development

The management and development of our resources is important for the socio-economic development and well being of our people. The original mandate of IRC has grown from that of being a “watchdog” over IOGC to that of a credible advocate and representative body for First Nations oil and gas producers. Our mandate must be in sync with industry standards and practices and ensure proper capacity development within our communities.

Our site utilizes key information surrounding our members and communities that are a part of the organization, a forum to discuss issues important to our people, outline our programs and initiatives that we are excited to be a part of and new updated resources for our people.
