A message from our president

As president of CCDC, I’m always on the lookout for the new opportunities our numerous clients present to us, especially when these opportunities can benefit not only our partners but also the First Nation communities.

Since 1976, we’ve been leaders when it comes to offering employment opportunities and economic advantages to the Cree Nation and its members.

We’re proud to provide high-quality services to our clients throughout Quebec and the rest of Canada.

We’re eager to discuss your particular needs with you and we’re confident that we’ll be an excellent partner in fulfilling them.

A message from our general manager

Since 1976, Cree Construction and Development Company, Ltd. has built a solid reputation. We’ve developed very specialized skills in managing and executing projects in the isolated, remote regions of the Great Canadian North.

As the general manager of CCDC since 2013, after having been with the company since 2004, I’m especially proud to participate in facing challenges that are not only enriching but also rewarding, with the aid of an experienced, dynamic team.

We consistently make every effort to improve our work environment in order to ensure the safety of all our employees and we make it a priority to hire and retain members of the Cree Nation.

Having the opportunity to participate in the construction and development of communities for the James Bay Cree Nation is an honor and a privilege. I know that we owe our success to the support of the Cree First Nations.
