This is a great example of how we can work together as Natives”.

“Doyon, Limited, as the parent company of Doyon Government Group’s DLS, is proud to partner with CTSC and to be awarded the contract for the Chief Joseph Dam,” said Aaron Schutt, President and CEO of Doyon, Limited. “We look forward to a productive relationship.”
