Congratulations to Richard Partridge on his signing as a qualified contractor with CKPI

Congratulations to Richard Partridge Sr. on establishing his own contracting business.

Recognizing there was opportunity in the forestry industry and on his traditional trapline, Richard Partridge took the initiative to become a “qualified contractor” with Canadian Kraft Paper Industry (CKPI). A lot of persistence and patience has lead to a contract for the 5-year Bignell cut logging operation north of Opaskwayak Cree Nation.

There were many challenges along the way for Partridge, such as developing a safety plan, registering his business, obtaining proper insurance requirements, equipment and staff training. Partridge will be working on the land for beaver controls, road testing and brush maintenance.

We wish Richard much success and happiness in the future, keep up the great work!
