Crew recognizes the energy driving our production and success comes from our people.

We believe in an engaged, motivated, and empowered workforce. Central to this belief and imperative at Crew is our meaningful and positive contribution to the communities in which we operate. Crew strives to foster open, honest, and supportive relationships with Indigenous, First Nations, and Métis Peoples and the communities impacted by Crew’s operations.

Integral to Crew’s operations is a strong safety culture.  Nothing is more important than protecting our ‘crew’ and ensuring the safety of our employees, contractors, and communities.

Crew is committed to constant improvement focusing on training, emergency preparedness, open communication, and a consistent safety message reinforced by our leadership.

By providing a supportive and inclusive environment that values a diversity of skills, backgrounds, cultures, and thought, Crew encourages employees to take ownership of their work and contributions.

“It’s all about people” – Dale O. Shwed, President and CEO
