ABO Donates to Fort Chipewyan Community High School Alternate Education Program

ABO donated $1,000 in support of the new Alternate Education program at the Fort Chipewyan Community High School (FCCHS) in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta. ABO is a partnership between Canadian Base Operators and Acden Holdings (Acden), a company owned by the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN). The ACFN, Mikisew Cree First Nation and M├ętis Local 125 started the Alternate Education program in early 2020. Centred at the Fort Chipewyan Keyano College campus, the program offers students Grade 10 to 12 module-based learning. Students can complete modules at home and at their own pace, allowing access to education, and minimizing barriers to education and the effects of isolation. ABO assisted Acden with the delivery of computer equipment consisting of 10 computers, monitors and printers that Acden donated to FCCHS. ABO is very proud to be part of such an important initiative.

ABO is an expert in the provision of turnkey, customized airport and aerodrome services for facilities of all sizes in the Wood Buffalo Region and enjoys being active in the communities in which we operate. ABO currently provides support services for the Suncor Firebag Airport.
