Business & tendering

We established a business registration process for a Keeyask Cree Nation (KCN) business to register to be included in a directory of KCN businesses available to do sub-contract work. After award of any Keeyask open competitive tendered contract, we will provide the names of all KCN businesses who have registered through this process to the successful contractor.

If you are a KCN business and would like to be included in the Keeyask Cree Nation (KCN) Business Directory, complete Keeyask Cree Nation Business Registration (PDF, 200 KB) and submit by:

  • Email the Keeyask Project.
