At a glance:

In continuous operation since 1986, Backwoods began as a tree planting contractor in the interior of British Columbia. Backwoods began to diversify into other forestry related services and, in the early 2000’s, transitioned focus to the North Western Albertan energy industry. The Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation acquired a majority ownership position in Backwoods Energy Services in 2015.

Backwoods has since grown tenfold and become a leading supplier of access and matting solutions, civil and forestry services, pipeline maintenance and security services in Western Canada.  We have been able to attract best-in-class management and operators from across the industry, allowing us to successfully complete some of the largest midstream and utility projects in Alberta. Moreover, we have become the largest employer of Alexis band members, the largest independent source of income in the community, and have increased Backwoods asset value by over 600%.


Today, Backwoods Energy Services is 100% Indigenous-owned and one of the largest Indigenous-Community owned companies in Canada.
