Decontie Milestone Inc.

Milestone Environmental Inc. and Decontie Construction Inc. formed Decontie Milestone Inc. in 2016. This Joint Venture is a leading Indigenous environmental contracting and construction company majority owned by Decontie Construction Inc., the first Algonquin-Anishinabe-owned general contractor to be licenced by the Régis du bâtiment du Québec (RBC), and the first Indigenous Canadian Brownsfielder Award recipient.

Decontie Milestone Inc. Our shared success started with the Corbeau Hydroelectric Station Demolition and Remediation, a $4.5M demolition/decommissioning project for Hydro Québec on the Anishinabe territory of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. It was a project that produced significant training and employment opportunities to recruit and retain local Algonquin workers directly from the Kitigan Zibi community and set the stage for subsequent projects including the Zibi Soil Remediation and Construction Project and the Pathway to Strengthening the Algonquin Anishinabe Workforce (PSAAW). PSAAW is a unique multi-year program that we are especially proud of as partners and represents the evolution of our partnership as we work to build bridges between industries and Indigenous communities, and to build long-term capacity in the construction industry.
