Contractor Wins Aboriginal Business Leadership Award


Troy Young, General Manager for LTN Contracting, accepts the award at the FPAC event in Vancouver.

Congratulations to LTN Contracting Ltd. for winning the 2015 Aboriginal Forestry Products Business Leadership award. 

LTN is one of Canfor’s leading logging contractors in the Prince George area but began quite modestly in 2000 with a non-replaceable logging contract of 50,000 m3 with Canfor. Now in its 15th year of operation, LTN has increased its contract volume tenfold.

Lheidli T'enneh First Nation formed the harvesting company, LTN, to provide the Band with employment, revenue and a vested interest in the forestry community. Through strong but conservative fiscal and operating management, LTN has developed into a successful and fiscally sound company.

The Aboriginal Forestry Products Business Leadership Award, presented by the Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) and the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business (CCAB), recognizes and celebrates selected Aboriginal entrepreneurs for their success in a forest products business.

Along with demonstrating a long-term commitment to the Aboriginal community and Aboriginal employment, recipients exemplify business leadership, exceptional environmental and safety performance and the delivery of high-quality products and services.

It was our pleasure to nominate LTN Contracting for this award and we are thrilled to learn of their well-deserved recognition.
