Originally Published by Treaty 2 Territory
A few months back during the fall we shared with you some exciting news of Gambler First Nation acquiring Odanah Truck Line – a Brandon based Trucking & Logistics Business which has been operating in Canada & 48 US States.
Timaskâw Transport was founded by Gambler First Nation and Kahkewistahâw First Nation; an equal partnership which represents a new approach to community owned businesses, economic capacity and community building.
A subsidiary of Timaskâw, Odanah Truck Line is growing and their runs have increased (but not limited to) the Mid-West USA to Alberta.
▪️▪️▪️▪️ Odanah Truck Line currently has opportunities available for Drivers to join their Deck and Van Divisions ▪️▪️▪️▪️
Odanah Truck Line is located in Brandon, Manitoba and has been in operation since 1999. Company drivers are paid a per mileage rate, plus a safety bonus, tarping and layover time.
Odanah strives to have their drivers home for a good work/home balance.
As part of their hiring process, they do have a preference for Class I Drivers with 2 (two) years experience and however they would be willing to make an exception for the right candidate.
It is a requirement for all drivers to supply their own personal protection equipment. Any and all equipment necessary for securing the load will be provided.
As with any company in the Trucking/Transport Industry, Odanah Truck Line is compliant with all rules and regulations for border crossing therefore all drivers must have a valid passport, drug and alcohol testing, knowledge of ELD’s as well as the requirement of double vaccination and the use of the ArriveCan app.

Once again, our Treaty 2 Territory Anishinaabe Government congratulate the Nation of Gambler as they lead in self sufficiency while securing a future for their members.

Heritage Co-op partners with Gambler First Nation on Western Nations Gas Bar

June 2021

Heritage Co-op and Gambler First Nation are pleased to announce the signing of a management agreement with respect to Gambler’s new gas bar facility located in Brandon, MB. Gambler has plans to develop their urban reserve property on 18th Street North to include additional retail space, offices, and a hotel. This partnership will allow Gambler to maintain ownership of the facility while Heritage Co-op will supply and support the day-to-day operations, resulting in an agreement that is beneficial to both organizations.

“While we had a lot of interest from all of the national brands to work with us on the development, we knew very early on that we felt most comfortable working with Heritage (Co-op) and FCL based on the relationships and trust we were able to build,” Chief LeDoux said. “We’re building this business and this development for the benefit of our Nation’s youth, so it was extremely important for us to have the day-to-day management in good hands until such time as we have the internal management capacity to take this on ourselves. Heritage Co-op is an expert in this industry and in understanding the local market so we’re very excited to have them working alongside us to ensure that this business is a success right out of the gates and that our customers receive the same level of customer service as Co-op is known for.”

Heritage Co-op is pleased to be partnering with a First Nation, on an urban reserve site in our trading area providing an opportunity to support our communities. This agreement will be part of the Western Nations brand that has been developed by Federated Co-operatives Ltd. in consultation with Indigenous leaders and communities across Western Canada. Indigenous communities own and operate their own locations while accessing the supply chain and support of the Co-op and their experience in building and operating gas bar facilities.

The Western Nations brand has a unique focus on re-investing in Indigenous communities and provides an opportunity for local Co-ops to further support the people and communities in which they serve.

It is anticipated that this site will be operational by fall 2021.
