The Strategic Service Partner
Our humble beginnings: Now, one of Canada’s largest Indigenous corporations, Acden began as a labour services company consisting of one truck and ten employees. Since its inception, our corporation has grown steadily and now encompasses multiple companies and ~1,800 employees.
Trees Up to Trees Up
From 'trees up to trees up', Acden provides the essential services for the planning, construction, maintenance and reclamation of Alberta's Oil Sands. We regularly refer to the trees up to trees up model to simplify our services as they make up all aspects of Acden.
This phase begins with the initial exploration of the land. This includes surveying, GIS mapping, identifying the flora and fauna and conducting environmental testing required to return the land to its original value when projects are completed.
Our Name Proclaims Our Identity
In 2012, the organization was rebranded from ACFN Business Group to Acden.
The rebranding brought cohesiveness and consistency to the operating companies and introduced a powerful, sophisticated and professional new brand to clients. In keeping with our heritage, the meaning of Acden incorporates Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and Denesoline, the founding company and First People (Denesųłiné).
