Britco, a modular construction company, is including logos of its aboriginal partners on various buildings located on partners’ traditional territories.

The K’ómoks First Nation will be the first to have their logo featured next to Britco’s on buildings leased on their traditional territory.

“The K’ómoks First Nation is a progressive, community-minded group and an important part of the Courtenay and Comox areas,” said Britco president Obie Erickson. “We’re thrilled to celebrate our partnership by proudly displaying the K’ómoks logo on our local buildings.”

The Langley-based company hopes that showcasing their Aboriginal partners’ logos alongside the Britco logo will encourage other B.C. businesses to forge aboriginal partnerships of their own.

“An important aspect of our business partnerships, like the one we have with Britco, is putting the face of our Nation back on our traditional territory. Britco has come up with the perfect solution for that,” KFN Chief Rob Everson said. “I am excited to see what the future holds for partnerships like these.”

Britco will continue to roll out side-by-side logos on their buildings on the traditional territories of their other Aboriginal partners throughout the year.

The K’ómoks First Nation is a key economic stakeholder with their unceded traditional territory. K’ómoks traditional territory is the eastern portion of Vancouver Island from the Salmon River watershed in the north to the Englishman River watershed in the south. The territory includes all of the islands and portions of the BC mainland from Forward Harbour in the north to include north-western Texada Island and all of Denman and Hornby Islands in the south.`
