Willow Lake Métis Group: Partnership Announcement

Willow Lake Métis Group and Backwoods Energy Services

Willow Lake Métis Group and Backwoods Energy Services are pleased to announce that they have made a step to further strengthen their partnership and position it for success in Northern Alberta.

Backwoods will now be Willow Lake Métis Group’s highly experienced choice for pipeline services – including installation, maintenance and turnaround, integrity and repair solutions, as well as reclamation.

Backwoods’ experience in this area is unparalleled in the region. Their highly experienced Pipeline, Facility, and Maintenance management team, subject matter experts, on-site construction supervisors and field personnel made this extension of the already strong partnership with Willow Lake Métis Group an easy choice.

Today Backwoods is a leading supplier of access and matting solutions, civil and forestry services, pipeline maintenance and security services in Western Canada. Backwoods Energy Services is 100% Indigenous-owned and one of the largest Indigenous-Community-owned companies in Canada.

Backwoods will replace Steel Willow Resources (Steel River Group) in the Willow Lake Métis Group ecosystem as the service provider for pipeline integrity, maintenance and reclamation services.
