March 1, 2011, Yellowknife – Trinity Helicopters recognizes that
serving northern industry means being where the action is, where people
are doing business. Trinity has entered into a new partnership with the
Mackay Range Development Corporation, a subsidiary of the Tulita Land
Corporation promoting business in the Sahtu region.
“We’re doing business across the North, for the North,” says Rob Carroll, President and co‐founder of Trinity Helicopters, “and this partnership enhances our capacity and ability to expand and serve the North.”
Carroll says that as a northern, Aboriginal‐owned company, Trinity finds it natural to team up with partners in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon. Established in 2009, Trinity has already entered into several strategic partnerships and won a number of prestigious contracts. Trinity will soon have bases in all three territories, providing faster response, better access and lower costs for helicopter services for northern companies.
The new partnership also benefits Mackay Range and the Tulita Dene.
“It allows us to build capacity in our community through education and training as well as financial growth for our future,” says Gordon Yakeleya, president of the Mackay Range Development Corporation.
The Mackay Range Development Corporation acts as a liaison between the Beneficiary Corporation for the Tulita Dene and businesses looking to work in the Sahtu region. It ensures that the business opportunities of the region are recognized and acted on, as to ensure local involvement and benefit. The Mackay Range Development Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tulita Land Corporation.
