Why Choose Cambium Aboriginal?

At Cambium Aboriginal, our company culture is the key contributor to our success. Culture, for us, is defined simply as “the way we do things around here”. It involves the way we interact with each other, with our clients, and with the communities that we serve.

As opposed to the traditional hierarchical structure, we work from a “flat” organizational structure, which facilitates the opportunity for participation by all team members in the company’s operations, including strategic planning. We also integrate an internal cross cultural training session into every project we do. This allows our non-First Nation based clients to begin in the passion that we have. We find that this inspires our staff to go above and beyond to make a project successful.
