Welcome to Aksis

Making Edmonton the Aboriginal Business Capital of Canada 

Due to Covid-19, the Aksis AGM has been postponed until distancing restrictions have been lifted.

Upcoming events

The Aboriginal business community has deep roots in Edmonton.

Aboriginal business has and will continue to play a significant role in defining Edmonton’s identity, from the city’s origins as a trading center to its future as a regional and national hub for Aboriginal businesses and professionals.

Funded by the City of Edmonton, Aksis is a membership driven, not-for-profit organization created to serve as a central meeting point that inspires Edmonton’s Aboriginal business and professional community to connect, collaborate & create.

Member Profile

The Clark Builders story began in Yellowknife, NT in 1974 and we have since grown to become one of the top ten general contractors in Canada serving the industrial, commercial, multi-family residential and institutional market sectors. Through an ownership structure comprised of our employees and our partner, Turner Construction Company (Turner), we maintain the culture of a small company with the distinct capabilities, resources and capacity of being a part of the largest construction organization in North America. We are a team that stands firm on our reputation and presence in Western and Northern Canada; regardless of the size, sector, location or complexity of a project, we will confidently deliver.   

We provide pre-construction, construction management, project management, fixed price, integrated project delivery and design-build services. Our self-perform team’s diverse and specialized skill set also offers professional trade work to clients, construction managers, and prime contractors including: site work and building foundations; large-scale, cast-in-place concrete work; carpentry; supply and erection of pre-engineered metal building systems; and metal cladding/metal deck supply and installation. 

Having maintained thriving operations in Canada’s North for over four decades, Clark Builders has collaborated with and routinely works with numerous indigenous businesses and community leaders on meaningful and often transformational projects that change communities for the better. The work we do with Canada’s indigenous communities is an important part of Clark Builders’ culture, growth and business strategy and our values are informed by and support the work that we do with indigenous peoples and communities.
